Acupuncture Today has received the following e-mail from Mimi Tagher, LAc, regarding a new acupuncture licensing bill being introduced in Kentucky. Ms. Tagher previously submitted a letter to Acupuncture Today titled "An Open Letter on the State of Acupuncture in Kentucky" (www.acupuncturetoday.com/online/tagher.html).
Denver Butler is the sponsor of the bill. He is the head of the Occupations and Licensing Committee. We also now have a co-sponsor for our bill. We are almost certain the bill will pass through the committee and the House. I think we still need help in the Senate, but we are working on that. The committee should meet in September, and I am hoping I can get official letters of support from all of the national organizations and a few key individuals to testify on our behalf. I have very high hopes of getting the bill passed in the next session.
Thanks to all of you for your help and support. I will be in touch.
