At the start of each new Congress, the slate of legislation is wiped clean and every bill must be reintroduced. We've created a blog post summary of some of the major legislation that AOTA supported during the 114th Congress (2015-2016).

This list is not exhaustive, but touches on some of our key issues from the previous session of Congress. Click the link below to view the blog post!
