CTAMFT is urging all MFTs to act on submitting testimony requesting changes to current language of HB 6837. Currently this bill proposes several changes that benefit Social Workers only, including reduction in fees and frequency of licensure renewal. Unless other mental health professions, MFTs included, are specifically mentioned we will not benefit from these changes.
CTAMFT urges members to submit testimony requesting changes in the licensure fees include MFTs and parity in licensure fees to Social Workers.

Call to Action: CTAMFT calls members to submit testimony regarding HB 6837 and requesting changes to include MFTs licensure fees be adjusted within parity to Social Workers as proposed.
