The Arizona Police Association (APA) and AHPA helped craft and support a bill, extending the time to report MRSA. HB 2476 helps officers who contract the disease to get treatment and makes it a compensated industrial injury. The bill will be heard tomorrow (March 15th) afternoon at 2 pm in the senate (Banking and Insurance Committee). It is the last committee hurdle for this piece of APA legislation.
We encourage you to write the legislators (see email addresses below) and support this bill. Thank you for your assistance!
