Legislative and Regulatory

Washington Ambulatory Surgery Center Association

As a trade association for ASCs, WASCA is an active participant in all legislative and activities in Olympia.

Also during legislation, WASCA Board of Directors members and staff, including its legal counsel and lobbyist, closely monitor bills. After considering recommendations of its Government Affairs Committee, WASCA’s Board of Directors determines whether to support, oppose or stay neutral on specific bills. Based on these determinations, Board of Directors members, staff and/or members may testify before committee hearings.

WASCA is also active between legislative sessions, monitoring and attending relevant committee meetings and monitoring and preparing comments during the rules writing phase after new laws have been passed.
