Jun 2, 2009 — PORTLAND, Ore. (June 2, 2009)—Oregon lawmakers today passed Senate Bill 327, expanding the prescribing authority for the state’s approximately 650 licensed naturopathic physicians.

The passage is seen as a major win for Oregonians, who face a growing shortage of primary care physicians, particularly in the rural and underserved areas of the state.
