2021 Legislative Session

legislation iconEach Friday or Saturday during the 2021 Virginia General Assembly session, OEMS will provide the State EMS Advisory Board members, Regional EMS Councils and other EMS stakeholders an OEMS Legislative Grid and Report on all legislation the office is tracking at this point. The Southwest Virginia EMS Council is forwarding this information to keep you informed of ongoing legislation that may impact the EMS system.

If you would like to have a full copy of any bill, please contact OEMS or log into: http://leg1.state.va.us/lis.htm">http://leg1.state.va.us/lis.htm  and you can view and download any bill of interest.  Many times OEMS is questioned as to why some of the bills are included on their tracking grid/report.  Every bill that is on the list has been identified because of its direct impact or potential impact on components of the EMS system, ranging from funding of Trauma Centers, EMS education, tax credits for volunteer EMS, penalties for tampering with EMS equipment and vehicles to all levels of EMS certification serving as vaccinators.
