2023 New York Chiropractic Lobby Day Recap

On Monday May 2nd, over 40 members of the New York State Chiropractic Association participated with the New York Chiropractic Council through the Joint Legislative Task Force in Chiropractic Lobby Day. We were also joined by representatives from New York’s two Chiropractic colleges, and we converged on Albany to support our legislative agenda and educate lawmakers regarding issues affecting the profession in our state.

We met with the offices of 60 legislators from the State Senate and Assembly and presented our arguments for our legislative agenda, which included the Chiropractic Scope Modernization Bill (S6047/A4150), which would update the enabling law that was written in 1963, the Health Care Provider Coalition Partnership Bill (S5581/A715), the Medicaid Pilot Program Bill (S6101), and Healthcare Non-Discrimination Act of 2023 (S6202/ A658).

Important points of all these bills were presented and many questions were answered for our legislators. We had very positive meetings, and many of the lawmakers with whom me met expressed enthusiastic support and several pledged to sign on as sponsors of our legislation.

We will continue to work to advance the profession in New York, and by your membership and support you add weight to our efforts.

Thank you,
NYSCA Legislative Committee
