Pending Legislation - Pennsylvania

The Association of Independent Craniofacial Advocates (AICA) has become aware of possible pending legislation in the state of Pennsylvania regarding orthodontic treatment for persons with cleft lip and/or palate.

We are awaiting word from Representative Nicholas Micozzie's office (Republican - Delaware County) as to whether they will introduce a bill and in what timeframe. A request was made to them by a constituent that remains un-named to us.

We would like to persuade Micozzie to introduce a bill that will focus not only on orthodontic treatment, but will encompass all medically-necessary treatment for craniofacial patients.

Present members of the PA advocacy team are:

Jason and Missy Fry
Cat Potter
Robin Siversten
Debbie Oliver
Michele ________
