Illinois birth advocates have been working very hard on a CPM licensing bill and are making good progress, despite very complex politics in the state government. Several other states are in various stages of work on their bills, but their legislative sessions are finished for now, without any other bills being passed.
Overall, this is very encouraging progress!! Kudos to all who are working so hard to make legal access to direct entry midwives a reality!!
