Pennsylvania Psychological Association's
Political Action Committee
Psychological Association Political Action Committee (PennPsyPAC) was organized
to advocate for the advancement of PPA's mission: "to effectively communicate to the public, policy makers, and membership, the value of evidence-based and ethical practice; to support the lifelong learning of competent and ethical psychologists; and to promote and connect our membership to foster a community of professional psychologists."
As a political
action committee, PennPsyPAC is able to make contributions to elected state legislators and candidates who support psychology's agenda.
In addition, PennPsyPAC hosts Advocacy Day for psychologists in Harrisburg each year. PPA members make personal visits to their state senators and representatives and invite them to support legislation that is important to the practice of clinical psychology
This year our primary legislative goal is to pass PSYPACT legislation in PA. Senator Judy Ward has introduced Senate Bill 67, which would permit Pennsylvania to adopt the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) to increase public access to psychological services by allowing for tele-psychological practice across state lines as well as temporary in-person services. This is a non-partisan bill with 20 co-sponsors.
