Legislative Update - March 2020

Our SAVE Bill for Full Practice Authority (H.1867 and S.1330), remains before the Joint Committee on Public Health after being given an extension order until 4/01/2020. Despite this delay, we remain optimistic that our bill will ultimately be favorably released to the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing (JCHCF). As previously reported, the Governor's Omnibus Healthcare Bill contains language related to the removal of licensing restrictions for nurse practitioners and we anticipate similar inclusion in health care bills that will be released by the Senate and House later in the session. We are encouraged by this and the support of many stakeholders and by several positive pieces in the Boston Globe including an editorial in support of our bill.

We will continue to work to advance our stand-alone bills and as the legislature prioritizes health care reform legislation, we will fight for the inclusion of FPA language in this and other vehicles. We have posted a new 
Grassroots email campaign on our website and urge you to reach out to your legislators to let them know you remain committed to advancing the SAVE Bill.
