Legislative Issues

In any given state legislative session, PPA monitors close to 100 bills that affect pharmacy and advocates for various priority issues that are set by our legislative committees.

Additionally, while we can't afford to be in Washington on a regular basis, PPA does work closely with a number of national associations on their advocacy efforts on the federal level - including efforts to enact pharmacy provider status and increase pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) transparency.

Pulse

PULSE is a webinar-based program designed for pharmacists with an interest in advocacy and becoming more involved with the legislative processes. Those who participate will gain a better understanding of federal and state government and its impact on pharmacy!

Legislative Day

PPA hosts an annual Legislative Day at the Capitol in Harrisburg. Attend and talk with Pennsylvania’s Representatives and Senators about the issues that affect you as a pharmacist, pharmacy technician and/or student pharmacist and that will impact the patients you serve! Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and student pharmacists are all encouraged to attend and schedule appointments with their Representatives and Senators. PPA will provide background information and talking points on our issues, directions, Capitol maps and much more. It is extremely important that you make an effort to attend this event!

Pharmacist Advocacy Team Visits

PPA puts together teams of five to seven pharmacists from across the state. Each team hits the halls of the state Capitol for half a day to advocate our legislative priorities and, hopefully, nudge Pennsylvania lawmakers toward the interests of pharmacists and their patients.
