Louisiana's 2017 Legislative session convened on Monday, April 10th, and will adjourn on June 8th. As LAFP gears up for the 2017 session, we will be posting everything you need to know about family medicine legislation. Check this page often for the most current information and be sure to follow us on Twitter @lafp_familydocs
for up to the minute information.
The LAFP uses Voter Voice to rally its members when a legislative effort is needed. Below is a brief description on how to register. The Grassroots Action Center can be used to answer a call to action or find legislation, as well as identify and contact your legislators.
Please take a moment to visit the Voter Voice Grassroots Action Center
and register. The Louisiana Legislature has placed restrictions on who can respond to calls to action by allowing only those individuals who reside in the district of the legislator to contact them. Please double check that you have registered with your home address as opposed to your work address to ensure you will be able to contact your legislator when we send out our call to action alerts.
