Government Relations Advocacy Updates

Each issue of the Government Relations Advocacy Update provides insights into legislative and judicial actions that impact medical liability and the practice of medicine. We are committed to providing an enduring national platform for advocacy for the medical profession.

Latest Issue: 2020 Year-End Review

By the end of the first quarter, we quickly pivoted to address the tidal wave of executive orders and legislation issued by governments in response to the global pandemic. COVID-19 interrupted the traditional legislative process, exponentially multiplied the number of emergency actions, and caused a surge of limited liability protection initiatives.
