Advocacy & Legislative Affairs - Welcome Message



Chair Dayne Alonso, MMS, PA-C                      

Welcome to the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants Legislative and Governmental Affairs Committee (LGAC) web page. The Florida Academy of Physician Assistants is the only organization that promotes and protects the PA profession in Florida. FAPA’s volunteer-based LGAC committee works diligently 12-months-out-of-the-year to ensure that PA’s have a voice and a vote in Tallahassee.


The FAPA Legislative and Governmental Affairs Committee (LGAC) engages with Mixon and Associates (M&A), the FAPA lobbying team, on a daily basis. M&A has helped ensure FAPAs legislative success for 22 years. The Mixon team works tirelessly to ensure physician assistants are included in all relevant legislation.


The LGAC is composed of two sub-committees whose joint purpose is to maintain awareness of current state legislative issues affecting physician assistants. The Legislative Executive Committee (LegExec) is composed of current and past FAPA leaders that embody the history and future of the PA practice.


The Legislative Affairs Committee (LAC) is composed of any FAPA member with an interest in legislative affairs. We call on members of the LAC sub-committee when specific issues arise on a state and practice level.


It is imperative that FAPA remains “at the table” with the Florida State Legislature to educate legislators on the PA profession and issues surrounding our practice. Grassroots lobbying is an integral part of the LGAC. YOU, the FAPA members, can make a difference in your district and in the state.


To make an impact now, contact YOUR legislators today and educate them about the PA profession. Visit the Advocacy Resources page to get to know your legislator.
