SB 187 Factsheet (140 KB)

We are being told that the opposition has med students "all over" the Capitol--lobbying against SB 187.  From this point until the bill is heard, we must utilize ALL options to push this bill forward.  We have come entirely too far not to!

It is critical that you:

1.  Come to the Capitol and meet with legislators.  Contact BJ Haynes at 225-235-0617 to setup a time and meeting location.  You will be talking to legislators along with our lobbyists and other NPs.

2.  Call as many legislators as you can and ask for their support!  See the attached list of Representatives above.

3. Get creative!  We have a few board members who are emailing a quick video of themselves asking for support of SB 187 to legislators.  If you have a smartphone, you can do it too!  

3. Get Patients Involved!  Click Here

4. Last but not least, you can also send a votervoice message. Click here to take action!

If you have any other ideas or innovative ways to reach legislators, please let us know!

Continue to communicate with us. Let us know if you have been able to connect with your Representative so we can communicate this with our lobbyists. Email us at

Thank you for your continued support!
