ILC Update: Your Legislative Alarm is Ringing

Do you use the alarm setting on your calendar software? I do. I enter an appointment into my calendar, set the alarm to remind me of the appointment and then I forget it. The beauty of a trusted system like this is that you know you don’t have to keep it on your mind, but you can trust that you are going to be alerted to what you need to know, when you need to know it. 


IHRSA has created that same trusted system for you when it comes to your legislative 'need-to-knows'. We send you legislative alerts when the legislature in your state is taking action that could have either a negative or positive effect on your business – providing you with as much time as possible (as well as the tools) to take action.

Early each year, we send you (ILC Members) reports alerting you to the threats and opportunities we see for the coming year, as well as a legislative report card, letting you know how the Industry and IHRSA Advocacy has done during the previous year. And, now we have added one more report to your alarm system, so that you can continue to rely on your trusted system, knowing that IHRSA will let you know what you need to know when you need to know it, in an easy to understand format, so you are never caught by surprise.

The newest report provides a recap of all the state legislative activity that could have impacted your business so far in 2014. If you are like me, your reading pile may have gotten a little high, and so you might appreciate IHRSA’s report, but think you may not actually have time to read it. We’ve taken care of that as well. We’ve done as much as possible to put what you need and what to know into easy to read and understand visuals.
