Chiropractic Awareness Month Official; HB 196 Signed Into Law
(COLUMBUS, OH) House Bill 196, sponsored by Representative Lipps (R-Franklin), was signed into law December 22nd by Governor John Kasich. The law, which goes into effect in 90 days, designates October as Chiropractic Awareness Month. OSCA testified in support of the bill earlier this month. “Previously, both the Governor and Lt. Governor of Ohio have designated October as Chiropractic Awareness Month via proclamation, but new proclamations have to be issued year after year for recognition. The OSCA worked with Representative Lipps to introduce legislation that will allow our members in Ohio to recognize Chiropractic Awareness Month on a yearly basis and allow our membership to coordinate and plan events with our national counterparts.” The bill was introduced on May 2, 2017.
