Urgent! Only 3 days left to pass ARNP controlled substance prescribing legislation

Posted over 3 years ago by Michelle Taylor


We need your help! Legislation that would allow nurse practitioners to prescribe controlled substances is in major trouble at the state Capitol! We have only three days left to convince members of the Senate to take up and pass the bills. Otherwise we start from scratch again next year.

Please call or email your state Senator NOW and ask them to vote for the ARNP prescribing legislation. It doesn't need to be long and detailed, a simple 2 sentence email will do or a simple call: "I'm XYZ and I am asking that Senator X vote for ARNP controlled substance prescribing".  Also please contact Senate President Andy Gardiner and ask him to support ARNP controlled substance prescribing.

The House passed the legislation in a near unanimous vote already.

Senator Joe Negron | | ph 850-487-5032 

Senator Thad Altman | | ph 850-487-5016

Senator Denise Grimsley | | ph 580-487-5021

Senator Joseph Abrusso | | ph 850-487-5025

Senate President Andy Gardiner | | ph 850-487-5013

You can make a difference in whether this legislation passes by Friday night!
