MNAAP Identifies 2019 Legislative Priorities
After reviewing the member survey, evaluating election results and discussing key pediatric concerns with MNAAP’s policy committee, the MNAAP Board has identified four legislative priorities for 2019:
- Reduce gun violence
- Strengthen immunization laws
- Oppose the 2019 sunset of Minnesota’s provider tax
- Increase behavioral health care access
Priority issues may change based on legislation introduced, public health emergencies, and other factors. As always, MNAAP will be monitoring a variety of issues and working with leading expert organizations to support legislation that assures the safety and health of all Minnesota children.
Watch for more information from MNAAP’s policy committee on these issues in the coming months. And be sure to join us in advocating for these and other issues on behalf of children at Pediatricians’ Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 6!
