Governor signs bills important to the ISMA
At the Statehouse, Gov. Mike Pence signs SB 50, Minors and Tanning Devices, into law accompanied by (left to right, standing) Carrie Davis, M.D., David Gerstein, M.D., Keeter Sechrist, M.D., Katie Donnar, and ISMA’s Mike Brady and Mike Rinebold. Sen. Patricia Miller, R-Indianapolis, and Sen. Frank Mrvan, D-Hammond, are seated next to the governor.
The same day, three other ISMA-supported bills were signed into law. They addressed prescriptive authority to schools to administer auto-injectable epinephrine, the study and data collection of neonatal abstinence syndrome, and licensure of pharmacy technicians and anesthesiologist assistants. The new laws were influenced by ISMA resolutions approved by the House of Delegates.
