NRHA Legislative and Regulatory Agenda

The Legislative and Regulatory Agenda reflects the mission and values of NRHA by highlighting issues of importance to our membership. It is a collection of issues and policy recommendations that NRHA members would like to see changed or impacted by NRHA staff and rural health advocates. The agenda is a resource for rural health advocates and policymakers to understand the multitude of issues and opportunities facing the rural health landscape.

The agenda is approved annually by the Government Affairs Committee. The committee attempts to weigh member input, potential opportunities in the new year and the shifting policy environment surrounding rural health. The policies that they select for inclusion are first adopted by the Rural Health Congress, which produces a series of papers and statements that are the background and support for this document.
