According to the author Patricia Rowell “there are instances where one might question the use of legislation or regulations to address an issue, there are some critical instances for which the political process is either the preferred route or last way to effect change. Two major examples of the value of legislative and regulatory involvement by professional associations are needle stick protections and whistle blower protections.”
