Rep. Bruce Bickford, R-Auburn, and Dr. Edmund Claxton Jr., Auburn, stand in front of the Speaker’s Rostrum in the House Chamber of the State House on May 23. Since 1996, the Maine Legislature has been working alongside the Maine Medical Association and the Maine Osteopathic Association to provide a physician for each day of the legislative session to assist in the event of a medical emergency. The “Doctor of the Day” program is now an established portion of daily the House calendar.
