New law allows physician assistants more freedom

Monday, 15 July 2013 10:28 Published in Local News

  ST. LOUIS (AP) - A law that takes effect Aug. 28 will give physicians assistants more freedom to provide care in areas of Missouri with a shortage of doctors.

 

   Currently, physician assistants must be supervised by a doctor located within 30 miles of where they practice. And a doctor must be present 66 percent of the time they are caring for patients.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/13dFcav ) the new law will allow the supervising doctor to be up to 50 miles away. The doctors also will have to spend only half of a day on site for every 14 days the physician assistant practices.

 

   Supporters of the new law say it allows physician assistants to provide more affordable care for people living in rural areas or in urban areas with understaffed clinics.

Missouri measure allows county bans on burning

Monday, 15 July 2013 08:31 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri counties will be allowed to approve ordinances enacting burn bans when the state fire marshal determines doing so would be appropriate.

 

   Gov. Jay Nixon signed into law broad legislation that included the burn ban issue.

 

   Burn bans approved by counties could carry a penalty of up to one year in jail for any violations. Burn bans also could prohibit use of skyrockets and missiles but not other consumer fireworks.

 

   Republican House member Donna Lichtenegger, of Jackson, sponsored the legislation. She says allowing county officials to enforce a ban on burning is an important safety step - particularly during droughts.

 

   The legislation takes effect Aug. 28.
