Holsclaw to Ask for Investigation of Optometry Bill

Republican gubernatorial candidate and Jefferson County Clerk Bobbie Holsclaw is calling for an investigation into one of the few bills to pass both chambers of the General Assembly this year.Holsclaw is targeting legislation that allows optometrists to perform some procedures currently only performed by ophthalmologists, who are medical doctors. She says the speed in which the bill passed the legislature raises concerns. She's not alleging any wrongdoing, but she does plan to ask state and federal officials to investigate the measure and how it passed.Optometrists spent about $250,000 on campaign contributions to state lawmakers in the last year.
