Veto Iowa HSB138

This petition had 16,505 supporters

If you, your child, or any other loved one were in the ICU, diagnosed with a lung disease, or required any care that a respiratory therapist would provide, would you want that person to be licensed? 

Governor Branstad (and other elected officials) recently decided that certain Iowa professions no longer need to be licensed. This includes RRTs (registered respiratory therapists). HSB138 is on the fast track to being approved legislation that would allow anyone off the street to be hired to do this delicate work. This includes work in PEDIATRIC UNITS.

This bill will not only impact the availability of skilled care, but it could also impact insurance coverage for those requiring respiratory care services.

This measure is set to vote March 2. As Iowa voters, let's take a stand against this bill. Tell your state government that you demand licensed, educated care. Sign this petition and let your voice be heard.
