CONGRATULATIONS ILLINOIS!!!!  At the AAPA House of Delegates meeting, AAPA showed Illinois as being one of the top states in the nation for physician assistant laws and regulations.  Illinois is registering a 5.5 out of 6 Elements of a PA friendly state.  Our success is due to IAPA hiring the lobbying team to assist our efforts at the Capitol to change laws and expand PA privileges.  It is important to continue our legislative efforts to remove the ratio in the private setting in order to be completely compliant with AAPA's vision.
