URGENT CALL TO ACTION: WE still NEED YOU TODAY!

Posted almost 3 years ago by Michelle Taylor

Re-posted from Janet Dupois on the FNPN website 3-9-16 for anyone who isn't on their distribution list:

We need ALL NPs in the state of Florida to call or email Senate President Andy Gardiner and ask him to pass the NP/PA Barbara Lumpkin Controlled Substance Bill HB423/SB676 when it comes back from the House. The House has passed their version and will most likely strip out the Insurance language from the bill which will make some in the senate unhappy and reluctant to pass the bill when it comes back to the senate for a final vote. 

At this point, it doesn't look good for this bill and if we don't do something, we only have ourselves to blame. Every single NP in Florida MUST call or email Senator Gardiner if we are to have any chance of this bill passing! Please don't just sit there and leave it to someone else! We need YOU to do it, and do it NOW. We need 1000's of letters and calls to hit his office today and tomorrow...session ends on Friday so this is our absolutely LAST CHANCE.  Let's BLOW UP HIS PHONE WITH CALLS!

Sen. President Andy Gardiner:
(850) 487-5013

We are strong if we do this together! 

Janet DuBois,
President, FNPN

BREAKING NEWS: SB 676 PASSES SENATE AND GOES BACK TO THE HOUSE

Our Controlled Substance prescribing bill by Sen. Grimsley, SB676, just passed the full senate vote unanimously and will go back to the house for reconcilliation. 

HOWEVER, there is still a long way to go and we anticipate a lot of difficulty in passing the revised version back through the senate. So please keep those emails and calls to Sen. Gardiner's office coming! 

Stay tunned for more information as it unfolds!
