Our annual EMS Legislative Breakfast is scheduled for 1/19/2022 at the Blatt Building on the SC Statehouse grounds. At present, this will still be an in-person event. Those planning to attend are required to attend a virtual planning session on 1/13/2022 at 13:00 (invite and additional information will be forthcoming).
During the planning session, we will provide insight on our legislative agenda and best practices for engaging with the general assembly and staff. Be on the lookout for these invites coming soon. Our agenda will include our "EMS as an Essential Service" legislation, sustainable funding for the SCEMSA and expansion of staffing, EMS eligibility into the PORS retirement system, and 2023/2024 Medicaid expansion. The Advocacy Committee has been busy developing this agenda, and we have pre-filed some of our proposed legislation. You can also expect to see the Advocacy "Take Action" requests to ramp up as the legislature returns to session. You can review the bills we are racking under our advocacy tab, by clicking the bills link.
Advocacy Committee Chair Steve McDade can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
