received powerful backing this past month from several prominent members of the House of Representatives. Signing on as co-sponsors to this legislation were:
Congressman LaTourette is the Co-Chair of the 112th Congressional House Nursing Caucus and many of these US Representatives also participate in this important group. The Caucus is non-partisan and provides a forum and opportunity for members of Congress to discuss and act upon matters that are of particular concern to the nursing community.
HR 3679 currently has 38 co-sponsors but more are needed to help the bill move forward. If you are interested in contacting your US Representative
, please email NNNO Board of Directors
for who to contact and important points to include in a phone call or a letter.
