The Medicare Respiratory Therapist Access Act of 2013 has a bill number in the House of Representatives.  It is H.R.2619.  Representative John Lewis from Georgia introduced it on July 8, 2013.  What that means now is we need to get Co-Sponsors in the House!!  As of now there are no listed co-sponsors, so every state is on the hook to contact their legislators to ask them to co-sponsor.
