Tuesday, November 18th in Charleston, WV
Sarita Bennett, DO and Midwife, from Marlinton, WV testified in response to the legislative auditors report for the Sunrise Legislation application for CPMs, which was submitted in June 2008. She testified before the joint committee of the House and Senate known as the Government Organization Committee. Currently, it was recommended that the application be denied due to the low number of CPM's practicing in WV and the inability to justify the cost of starting an independent regulatory board.
Overall the response from committee members was positive and we were encouraged to continue working on our efforts.
