ADEA United States Interactive Legislative Tracking Map

This interactive map provides current information on state legislation of interest to academic dentistry for all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. 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.


The information on the map will be automatically updated daily. States on the map in solid white have either not begun their legislative session or have yet to introduce bills relevant to the selected topic. However, 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 tool for keeping abreast of legislation of interest in your state.
