PPA Legislator of the Year Award

PPA began a new tradition in 2010 with the presentation of the Legislator of the Year Award. This award is presented to an elected member of the Pennsylvania legislature who has demonstrated legislative leadership and support of the pharmacy profession.

This Year's Recipient

The Honorable Robert Matzie

 

Representative Matzie was honored with this award because of his commitment and advocacy to pharmacy. In the current legislative session, Representative Matzie is the prime sponsor of House Bill 941. This bill is a major priority for the pharmacy community and with Representative Matzie’s diligent advocacy it is slated to run in November, 2019. This bill requires transparency in Medicaid with regard to PBMs and taxpayer money as well as provides for fair reimbursement to pharmacists for the services they provide to their patients. Representative Matzie has been instrumental to PPA’s advocacy efforts and continues to advocate in a bi-partisan manner for the good of the Commonwealth and the patients served by our pharmacists. Rep. Matzie is also the democratic chairman of the Pennsylvania Community Pharmacy Caucus in the House.
