To all Central Georgia UAPRN Members
A hearing on SB 386 to remove the "life threatening situation" restriction to APRN ordering of imaging scans such as MRI's and CT scans will be tomorrow in the morning. Senator Miriam Paris is on the subcommittee. She is a freshman Senator from a real estate background and only has the information about APRN's that I was able to give her in a very cordial meeting yeaterday. She covers the following counties:
Bibb, Houston, Twigs, Wilkinson
Her office contact information is :
Phone: (404) 656-5035
Fax: (404) 463-2071
I am asking that APRN's call the office, identify themselves as APRN's from her district and ask her to support SB 386. Her administrative assistant will answer during the day and report the calls to her. Phone messages can be left even after hours that simply say. " I am an Advanced Practice Nurse who lives in your district and I urge you to support SB 386" . E-mails can be that brief as well and put "Please vote yes and support SB 386 in the subject line. This is critical. The Central Georgia APRN community can have great influence in getting this bill moved on in the process. Please use your contacts to generate as much contact to Senator Paris as possible between now and tomorrow
Thank you for your participation, your letters are having an impact. Keep it up!
