Virginia Advances Licensure Legislation for Occupational Therapy Assistants



The Virginia Occupational Therapy Association (VOTA) has taken major steps in its efforts to secure licensure for occupational therapy assistants (OTAs). House Bill 383 and Senate Bill 134 were introduced on January 3 and 4 respectively, and would provide for the licensure of OTAs. H.B. 383 was reported unanimously from the Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee and passed by the House on January 14. S.B. 134 was reported unanimously from the Education and Health Committee on January 24. S.B. 134 has been placed on the Senate's uncontested calendar. In Virginia, placing a bill on the uncontested calendar means that it will be passed by the Senate without amendments and delivered to Governor Tim Kaine (D) unless a senator specifically requests that the bill be removed. The full text of the House and Senate bills can be found at:

VOTA has developed the 20072008 Virginia Occupational Therapy Association Grassroots Advocacy Guide to guide and support the licensure effort. The guide can be accessed at http://www.vaota.org/pdfs/VOTAgrassrootsguide.pdf..

AOTA will be working closely with VOTA to advocate the passage of this important legislation and encourages its members to contact their state legislators and Governor Kaine in support of the licensure efforts.
