P&A TEAM HOSTS SUCCESSFUL
The GLMS Policy & Advocacy Team hosted a legislative reception at the U of L Shelby campus on
Jan. 22, 2015.
The KMA Physicians’ Day in Frankfort, originally scheduled for Feb.
18, 2015, was cancelled in its entirety due to inclement weather.
The reception gave GLMS physicians the opportunity to meet face to face with state senators
and representatives to discuss the legislative issues most affecting their practices today. Nearly
a dozen Kentucky legislators visited the event
including members of both parties.
Consequently, our most effective
approach for reaching the capitol
will be phone calls to individual
legislators via the legislative message line, 1-800-372-7181.
For more information about the
current status of our priority bills
as well as the Jefferson County
members of the committees considering them, visit www.glms.org/
signatures of at least 199 active GLMS members
to the GLMS offices no later than the end of the
business day on Friday, Feb. 27. An official petition form is available here or you may call 502736-6338.

Although the 2015 legislative session is a short
one, only 30 days, physicians and legislators both
hope to make significant progress on several of
the most pressing issues. GLMS President Bruce
