HB 486 passed the House today. (73 for - 24 against).  The next step for HB 486 is to be heard in the Senate Health and Welfare committee.  We will post details about the hearing as soon as they are available. 

In the meantime, all NPs whose Senator is on the Senate Health & Welfare Committee, we ask that you please contact your legislator in support of HB 486 via the LANP Advocacy Action Center

Please note, that because the bill will follow a similar process through the Senate, if you have already contacted a legislator on the House side, it is essential for you to also contact your legislator on the Senate side.

If you are not sure if your Senator is on the Health & Welfare committee, by completing the form on the Action Center webpage, the program will populate that information for you.
