Help Us Get SHB 2264 to the Floor of the Senate for a Vote!

Posted almost 2 years ago by Louise Kaplan

We need your help!  SHB 2264 concerning hospital privileges for advanced registered nurse practitioners and physician assistants is still in Senate Rules Committee. It must be voted on by the Senate no later than Friday March 2, 2108. Please contact your district's state senator is he or she is on Rules Committee and ask the bill be sent to the full Senate for a vote.   The list of Rule Committee members is below.  Here is a sample message. And thank you for your help!

ARNPs United of Washington would appreciate your help in pulling SHB 2264, concerning hospital privileges for advanced registered nurse practitioners and physician assistants, from the Rules Committee to the floor for a final vote in the Senate. SHB 2264 passed out of the House of Representatives unanimously. It has now passed the Senate Health and Long-Term Care Committee and is in Senate Rules.

This bill has been a two year process of working with the WA State Hospital Association and the WA Academy of Physicians Assistants and we are all in agreement and in support of this legislation. We are hopeful that you will help get this important clarification for hospital privileging out of the Senate Rules Committee and on to the floor of the Senate for a final vote.

 Thank you.
