The VDA has closely tracked this legislation since it was introduced and has joined a coalition of dozens of healthcare groups in strong opposition. The coalition sent letters to House and Senate leadership in December explaining the harmful impact SB 1107 would have in increasing costs and limiting access to care.
We will continue to provide updates for members on this legislation and other policies that could impact dentistry.
