At the recommendation of our lobbyists and health policy team, SB 187 has been postponed to next week. The decision was based several factors, but mainly due to the bill being scheduled on a day that is typically a "slow" day in terms of the number of legislators who are present for voting.

We are tentatively anticipating the bill to be scheduled for Wednesday, May 25. We ask that you please continue to call and email ALL Representatives in support of SB 187.  

We want you to know that your phone calls and emails ARE being heard. We are gaining votes and seeing a positive shift.

The Representatives' offices continue to be overwhelmed with messages. They are only able to keep a count of the number of messages for and against.  We need MORE calls and emails from NPs and patients to continue over the weekend and into next week.

It is critical that you:

1.  Come to the Capitol and meet with legislators on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.  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 ALL Representatives and ask for their support!  See the attached list of Representatives above.

3. Get Patients Involved!  Click Here

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

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 all your hard work and continued support!
