Check out VGM's New State and Federal Legislative Tracker

Published in Government Relations on March 10, 2022

For many years VGM has been your trusted source for state and federal legislative information.  We are excited to share with you a new feature on our website that tracks state and federal legislation.

VGM purchased the Fiscal Note program back in 2020 to track DMEPOS and Women’s Health issues by keyword searches. Over the past year, we have been working with Fiscal Note to offer a product we could share with our VGM members and state associations to house current federal and state legislation. Click here to view the new Legislative Tracker!

When selecting the state bills option, you will be taken to a map of the United States. Simply click on the state you would like to see and it will take you to any DMEPOS legislation links. You can click on those links to view more information on the bill. If you don’t find a particular bill, please reach out to [email protected] so we can research it and add to our page.

This page will continue to evolve over time. Our next phase will include a list of congressional contacts and Health Legislative Aids for each congressional member.

We value our working with you and appreciate you feedback! Feel free to let us know what you think or if you have any questions.
