Health Policy Update: Today at 1pm
Today at 1pm, the House of Representatives will convene. SB 187 is once again scheduled to be heard.
You can watch the live video feed here: http://www.legis.la.gov. Click under the House of Representatives. The agenda for the session can be found here: http://www.legis.la.gov/legis/Agenda.aspx?c=H&g=BODY
In the meantime, we invite you to continue contacting your legislators' office throughout the day. (Find your legislator here.) However, once the House session convenes, we are asking NPs to call THEIR legislator via the House floor switchboard at 225-342-6945. You will likely have to leave a message, but please do.
The health policy team including our lobbyists and several nurse practitioners who plan to be at the Capitol today will continue to work to lobby this bill until the final vote is cast. Lastly, if you are so inclined, we welcome a prayer for all those who have worked tirelessly to garner support for SB187 and for the legislators who are voting today—that they vote with the best interests of the citizens of Louisiana in mind.
Thank you again for all your support! We will share any new developments as soon as we possibly can.
