Dear Pennsylvania R.T.s and Students:

The Pennsylvania Society and Philadelphia Society of Radiologic Technologists are pleased to let you know that House Bill 1545, sponsored by Rep. Bryan Cutler, R.T.(R), was heard in the Pennsylvania House Professional Licensure Committee on February 27. HB 1545 will establish a Pennsylvania Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Board of Examiners to license radiographers, radiation therapists, nuclear medicine technologists, magnetic resonance technologists, sonographers, radiologist assistants and limited x-ray machine operators who meet the board's qualifications, and to investigate patient care incidents. 

PSRT and PhilaSRT need your help today to keep the bill moving towards enactment. As soon as possible, please:

  • Contact your state representative and senator and ask them to support HB 1545. A message has been started for you to use; just personalize it, press send and it will go to your state lawmakers.
  • Attend the PSRT/PhilaSRT Lobby Day event.  R.T.s from around the state will gather at the capitol in Harrisburg on May 1 and again on June 5 to talk with lawmakers about the need for consistent and effective standards for radiologic technologists. If you can attend, please email as soon as possible your name, address, ZIP code (so we can determine who your lawmakers are) and the date(s) and time(s) you can attend to psrtonline@gmail.com. Talking points about HB 1545 and other materials will be provided for you to share with your lawmakers during your meetings.  A final agenda will be emailed to you along with the meeting location at the Capitol.
