I agree with the proposal.  Let PAs practice according to their training! The most dangerous person in medicine is someone who doesn't know what they don't know- this is regardless of the degree or letters behind your name.  The expectation is that anyone practicing in the medical field will be responsible enough to consult when necessary.  Kept how it is the law hinder access to medical care for patients and causes further confusion & divide between MDs, DOs, PAs, and NPs.
