This interactive map provides current information on state legislation of interest to academic dentistry for all fifty states and the District of Columbia (Puerto Rico will be added to the map later this year). The map will allow users to:
- View the current status of bills,
- View upcoming hearing dates, and
- View current bill text and bill author/sponsor information.
Using the dropdown menu below, users may view state legislation pertaining to selected topics.
The map below utilizes an Adobe Flash add-on. If you do not see the map, it is an indication that the Adobe Flash add-on may be disabled on your computer. It is recommended that you choose another browser, e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, Internet Explorer 10 (Windows 8), Internet Explorer 11 (Windows 8.1) or consider updating your version of the add-on before re-activating it.
There are several states that will not have a Regular 2014 Legislative Session, and as a result, those state links on the map are inactive.
The information on the map will be automatically updated daily. As new bills relevant to academic dentistry are introduced, the bills will be added to the map. This compilation provides a nation-wide perspective on issues of interest—and will serve as a useful new tool for keeping abreast of legislation of interest in your state.
