Washington, DC – Congressman Ted S. Yoho’s H.R. 1528, “The Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act” (VMMA), was signed into law Friday by President Obama. This is the first bill Congressman Yoho has had signed into law, and now places him among only eight Freshman Members to have had this achievement. The bill makes modifications to the Controlled Substances Act and Drug Enforcement Administration policy that, to date, has prohibited veterinarians from transporting controlled substances to administer and treat patients outside of the registered location.
The Congressman released the following statement:
I was pleased to hear the President signed the VMMA into law today. This bill will not only benefit all who practice large animal veterinary medicine but the farmers and ranchers who rely on them. This law will allow veterinarians to practice their profession without fear of unnecessary government intrusion. I am thankful for my fellow vet and colleague, Representative Schrader’s hard work on this important policy change.
Congressman Ted Yoho joined us today ” In Touch With the Suwannee Valley” to discuss issues ranging from Immigration to the Middle East. We also spoke about His House Bill HR 1528, the Veterinarian Mobility Act, which will benefit area farmers.
We, recently, enjoyed having Vera Chaples on with us for “In Touch With the Suwannee Valley” to discuss the Mystic Jungle Educational Facility located in Live Oak. The Facility is geared towards conservation, preservation and the education of the public on endangered big cats.
