GR Urgent Call To Action LB78

"The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team” - Phil Jackson

Hello Member,


As you know, we have introduced a legislative bill, sponsored by Sen. Day, to update the definition of massage therapy in the state of Nebraska. This bill was introduced Jan 5th and designated as LB78. We need your help to move this bill forward, our first CALL TO ACTION of the year. It feels really good to be contacting the senators in favor of a bill, using this opportunity to educate in a positive direction, and show them we are a force to be reckoned with no matter which side of the argument we are on.

The hearing date is likely to be as early as the week of January 23 with the Health and Human Services Committee we need you to help us collect letters of support from other healthcare practitioners

  • Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Athletic Trainers, Nurse Practitioners, MDs, Hospitals, Doctors Offices, Dentists, Mental Health Practitioners, Acupuncturists, Osteopaths, etc

These letters need to be

  • On official letterhead

  • Address LMTs as “healthcare professionals”

  • Be sent as a PDF to nebraskaamta@gmail.com (either directly or forwarded by you.)

  • By January 20, 2023

Here is a link to a sample letter for you to send to your healthcare provider contacts.

Our hard deadline for all of this is Jan 20th, anything received after this may not be able to be used prior to hearing.
