IDA leadership, Government Affairs Committee and IDPAC participated in a Zoom call with Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives Todd Huston (R). The Speaker gave an update on the 2020 session, discussed the upcoming budget session and the state’s fiscal condition during uncertain times.
Participants on the call were able to discuss the IDA’s upcoming legislative package, which will include vaccination administration by dentists, third-party payer reform, the definition of dentistry and ensuring that dentists will be able to test for COVID-19 when the test becomes available. The group also discussed dental Medicaid issues.
IDA staff are presently working on organizing a Zoom call with President Pro Tempore Rod Bray in the coming weeks.
