SMEMSIC has received word that House Bill 4785 which is a bill requesting an increase in EMS fees has been introduced. This bill would increase or add a number of EMS fees to current State statute. We are aware that there have also been some editorial changes that have been proposed to the statute. It is our understanding that this bill was just introduced during the week of May 27, 2013. This bill introduces or increases fees for many EMS programs including fees for continuing education applications from individual instructors.
SMEMSIC has opened a discussion forum for members to provide input to the SMEMSIC Board of Directors so that our organization can take a position on these proposed changes.
