AA's In Utah Soon To Be Reality!

Senator Hatch receives an award...

Ok everyone - It is that time of year again. This year we are having problems getting the AA bill through committee so that it can go to the House floor for a vote. There are a few rural House reps on the committee who are getting a lot of heat from their CRNA constituents.

As a result this bill is in a make it or break it mode for the next few weeks. If it does not pass committee it is still possible to run it on the floor, but it will have a very negative outlook-as it did not even pass committee. That non pass will raise eyebrows of those potential votes, wondering why they should vote for it when it could not pass committee. Not impossible, but pretty darn close.

So our plea from the Utah pre-AAs is this: If you know of anyone or have any family in Utah, ESPECIALLY IN RURAL UTAH, (but anywhere will also do) ask them to go to to find their house representative and call them asking for their support for the Anesthesiologist Assistant Act which is before the Sunrise Committee right now (It is formerly HB 269 from last year but does not have a number as of yet). It should literally take friends/family less than 5 minutes to do. Their e-mails are listed there too, but a phone call is preferred.

PLEASE do not make this thread into a CRNA v. AA thread!!! We need positive support for having this bill pass. If you have any questions email me @

THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! By doing this you are helping  to move Anesthesiologist Assistants into more states!!

Great News!

We passed committee and now have a bill number. It is HB 101. Keep up the great work!  Also, any of you that actually did contact your family/friends out here, give them a big Thank You!!

HB 101

Just to be clear to everyone reading this thread....the bill has not passed, it only passed committee... Now the state's legislators (both representatives and senators) will have to vote on it to become a law. I think the future is bright for it, but keep up the support. Thanks from all of us Pre-Anesthesiologist Assistants out here!
