On March 14, 2018 the House of Representatives Professional Licensure Committee unanimously voted yes on our bill, SB 530, which provides practice protection and diagnosis rights to LCSWs in Pennsylvania. The vote brings us one step closer to passing this important piece of legislation for Pennsylvania social workers and the clients they serve!

NASW-PA would like to say THANK YOU to all who have stepped up and advocated for this bill to get it this far. Senator Tom Killion deserves a special thank you for sponsoring this bill and thus, supporting social workers in Pennsylvania. We would also like to thank House Professional Licensure Committee Chair Representative Mark Mustio, and Democratic Chair Representative Harry Readshaw.

Years of hard work have brought us to this point, and now, with months remaining on the legislative session, we are asking our members and friends of the profession to stand up and help us push this bill across the finish line. Learn more about Senate Bill 530 HERE. We also encourage you to join us for Legislative Education and Advocacy Day (LEAD) on April 23, 2018. You can learn more about LEAD HERE.
