American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Committee on Trauma logoThe American College of Surgeons (ACS) tracks state legislation important to surgical practice in every state using an online tool. The links below provide a comprehensive list of all trauma-related state legislation ACS staff is currently monitoring in each of the ACS Committee on Trauma (COT) State Regions.

The state legislation for each region can be sorted by state, issue, and status. The listed bills are updated automatically as they move through the process or as new bills are added to the tracking system by ACS State Affairs staff. Downloadable and printable reports can be pulled from the system. COT State Chairs are encouraged to utilize this information for identifying and engaging on legislation in their states in collaboration with ACS State Chapters and other partners.

Any questions about any of this legislation may be directed to the State Affairs staff at
