MeSA Grateful for Grassroots Advocacy of Members

2015 has been quite a year at the Capitol for the MeSA.  The nurses brought forth legislation that would have expanded their scope of practice to include full prescribing rights and independent practice.  It was a long but successful battle for us.  We are grateful to the combined efforts of our members and our lobbyist Charlie Soltan, Esq, as well as the Maine Medical Association’s Gordon Smith, Andy MacLean and Peter Michaud, Spectrum’s Ann Robinson and James Bass, Esq, of SoltanBass.
