Wisconsin Governor Signs Anesthesiologist Assistants Licensure Bill

Friday, March 30, 2012

On March 28, 2012, Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) signed into law a licensure bill for Anesthesiologist Assistants, S.B. 383.  Supported by the Wisconsin Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants (WAAA), Wisconsin Society of Anesthesiologists (WSA), Wisconsin Medical Society and other medical organizations, the bill provides licensure for anesthesiologist assistants, who since 1980 operated under delegatory authority. The bill also created a Council on Anesthesiologist Assistants under the Medical Examining Board.

The WSA conducted a vigorous grassroots campaign to support the bill and ASA applauds their success. 

From left to right:  Jack Lund, AA-C, WAAA Elect Position;  Robert Kettler, M.D., ASA District Director and WSA Board Member, Robert Stupi, AA-C, WAAA Vice-President; Governor Scott Walker (R-WI); Jack Peterson, AA-C, WAAA Secretary; Sara Strom, AA-C, WAAA President.
