Speak Out! Legislative ideas wanted

CAPT wants to hear from you -- your ideas, concepts, problems and solutions. All legislation begins as an idea or concept: “There ought to be a law!” Ideas and concepts can come from a variety of sources, including professional organizations like CAPT. The law-making process begins when a senator or assembly member decides to author a bill, when the idea takes written form and is introduced to their house. The legislative process is a long and winding road, but traveling it can make a difference for ourselves and the Californians we care for.

If you have a great idea that you would like considered in CAPT’s upcoming legislative agenda, contact your local chapter office or CAPT Consultant Coby Pizzotti by Dec. 1 at (800) 677-2278 or

Whether in the halls of the State Capitol or at local-level events, CAPT members and representatives get our profession and services noticed by elected officials. Download flier.
