Legislative Update: 2023 Wrap-Up
February 23, 2024 by William Bradford

As 2023 wrapped up, the ASRT advocacy team remained active across states. From sending letters in support or opposition of legislative or regulatory proposals to building relationships with partner organizations, ASRT continues to promote and elevate the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession. 

State Actions:  

ASRT continued participation in biweekly calls on legislative and regulatory efforts in four states: California, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. These efforts are in coordination with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.  

Letters ASRT Sent:  

Along with the formal campaigns above, ASRT has sent letters to numerous states to voice opposition and recommend changes to proposals across issue areas, including encroachment, inappropriate scope of practice expansion, remote imaging and deregulation.  

  • Ohio – Computed Tomography Rules Change 
  • Wisconsin – Advance Practice Registered Nurse  
  • Arizona – Remote Imaging and Telehealth 
  • Iowa – Physician Assistant 
  • New York – Limited X-ray Machine Operator 
  • Montana – Physician Assistant 

In addition to these letters of opposition, ASRT has sent letters and recommendations to the following states to express support. 

  • District of Columbia – R.T. Licensure  
  • North Carolina – Nuclear Medicine Rules Change 
  • Massachusetts – Sonographers and Vascular Technologists 
  • South Dakota – Radiation Control 

What’s next? 

January marked the beginning of 2024 legislative sessions at the state and federal level. With state legislatures meeting once again, a flurry of new legislation has been introduced across the country. Through this deluge of legislation, ASRT remains committed to tracking and monitoring all legislation that impacts diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy.  

The ASRT Government Relations and Public Policy Department continues to hold calls with partner organizations, engage with partners and track legislation introduced in 2023 and 2024.
