Update to Florida Injectibles Story

Florida Board Minutes May be Wrong - Awaiting Review and Approval

In a recent story we reported that the subject of injectibles had been brought up before the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine during their May 18th meeting. According to a source it may not have been the FCA's lobbyist who asked for the Board's help in their legislative efforts but actually the Florida Chiropractic Physicians Association (FCPA).

Ron Watson is the Lobbyist for the FCPA. Their website has this to say about him:

He is young, he is spot-on and he is aggressive. He is our man.

"My name is Ron Watson and thanks to you I have the privilege to be the new lobbyist that represents the FCPA. I met many of you recently at the FCPA's Nationwide CE Seminar in Orlando a couple weeks ago.

I have over 27 years experience as a lobbyist in Florida and I look forward to representing you and the FCPA before both the Legislature and the Board of Chiropractic Medicine. This will be fun and exciting. I am excited by the opportunity and look forward to fighting for your profession."

The FCPA has long pushed for injectibles in the state - beyond that they want drug rights. They FCPA has been urging the FCA to go along.

We will update this story once the minutes are finalized.
