State Legislative Efforts

IPA works closely with lawmakers and lobbyists at the state level to advance issues for psychologists.  IPA has successfully worked with our  lobbyists at the Iowa legislature, Amy Campbell and Craig Patterson of Campbell/Patterson Consulting, LLP, on a number of different initiatives for the benefit of Iowa psychologists and trainees.  These include Provisional Licensure for post-doctoral psychologists as well as Psychologist Prescriptive Authority.  

While the legislature is in session, our lobbyists post regular reports designed to keep IPA members apprised of the status of pending legislation of interest and to notify Iowa psychologists of opportunities for action. You can also use CPC's online Bill Tracker to follow the progress of legislation of interest to IPA.
