Action needed to move SB 386 through the House of Representatives
March 12, 2012
The legislature reconvened today for day 31. Now is the time for us to focus on the House of Representatives to get SB 386 through the committee process and on the calendar for a vote.
Two action are necessary
- Please contact the members of the House Health and Human Services Committee. Let them know how passage of this bill will improve your ability to care for patients, improve quality, reduce unnecessary cost, duplication of services, etc. If you are a constituent, please identify yourself as such. If you have any relationship with Chairman Cooper of Vice-chairman Rynders, please let me know. The contact information for the committee is found in the link below: Click Here
- Please contact your local House of Representatives member and ask them to support SB 386 and why. If you do not know who your Representative is, you can find this out by going to www.votesmart.org Links to contact information for all of the House of Representatives members is found at: Click Here
I can’t emphasize enough the impact that your efforts in contacting your elected representatives has. Many of the Senators who voted in favor of SB 386 cited contact from constituents as a reason for their “yes” votes. Many of those who voted against it heard from no one but the medical lobby.
Let’s all work together and get this bill through!
