NPNY: Legislative Position Statement
Our New York state legislators are currently making critical decisions on the future of Nurse Practitioner practice. Proposed bills range from simple removal of barriers including removal of the written practice agreement by Senator Montgomery's Bill S2309 to varying levels of transition to practice including Governor Cuomo's Executive Budget Bill (go to pg 387) , Senate Budget (top of page 21) and Assembly Budget (refer towards the end of Part Y) recommendations. The Assembly Budget includes language similar to Assemblymember Gottfried's Bill A4846. It is important to familiarize yourself with the actual language embedded in these documents and understand the implications on providing patient care and professional practice.We encourage you to join us by reaching out to your legislators and support NPNY's united goal of removing barriers to Nurse Practitioner practice and increasing access to care for our patients. Your voice counts!
