Dear Representative/Senator _______,

My name is _____ and am an athletic trainer from ______.  I would like to ask for your support for House Bill 691 by Representative Broadwater.  This bill looks to:

1.    Changes "certification" to "licensure"

  • Updates the regulation of Athletic Training in Louisiana to require a license to practice
2.    Eliminate outdated verbiage (26+ years old)        
  • Eliminates and updates LSBME language to reflect current Board policies and procedures
  • Updates current minimum education and training requirements  for licensure        

3.    Provides clarification and improves the supervisory role of the team or consulting physician    

This bill has the support of our regulating body, the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners and the Louisiana Medical Society has no opposition to the bill . I would really appreciate your consideration of this bill. If I can answer any question that you may have, please let me know. Thanks for your support!
