Help we don't have ENOUGH NURSES coming to the Capitol TODAY or Next Tuesday 3/27!!!

Today is a crucial day. APRN bill HB 927 will be up for a vote (again) on the Senate floor under the new bill number, then if it passes, it will be heading over to the House for "Agrees" either TODAY or more likely the next Session Day Tuesday March 27th. So that means we have to reach out to 56 Senators today before the vote and also simultaneously have some people starting to work on the House Side with over 180 Representatives to Educate them on our bill (some may think it is a FPA bill still) and as for their support.

Radiology is actively working against this bill. We need your help. Please share with everyone, if you can come down today or next Tuesday even for 1 hour please do so. For tomorrow we only have 6 people signed up to help, this is not enough people to do this enormous amount of work. Our lobbyist will be their working on this with you and guiding you. Other seasoned advocates are going to be there too.

Today will go 10am to 5 pm or so, no later because the Vice President is coming to town.

Tuesday 3/27 will go from 10 am to Midnight!

This is the final hour to support this legislation to improve your practice environment in GA and chip away at these barriers.

If you cannot come please flood GA Senators and Representatives with calls/emails to support these bills. You can look up your legislators at openstates.org

Thank you for all that you do...Together we can make this happen for Georgia!
