Go to the Representative scrolling list and select the each of the five reps you have chosen from the list below and click on their biography.  Look for their actual contact information and send your thank you letter asking them to support H 5669.  This is well worth your $2.35 investment in your term protection!

                                                          We appreciate your help!

Here is an example;

Dear Representative Ackerman,

I am very grateful you have taken time to consider our legislative effort of H5669 that addresses term protection for the practice of physical therapy, physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in RI. Clear designation equals clear choice for consumers needing rehabilitative services.

Our additional aim in this legislation is to modernize the definition of physical therapy to reflect current clinical practice, curricula, and accreditation standards within our scope of practice and with direct access. As this profession continuously evolves in practice to meet the needs of society and adopt the shift of health care to provide cost- efficient, consumer-centered, and value-based care we hope you will support our bill H5669.
