Call to Action: SB 826
Dear ANA-Michigan Member:
Senate Bill 826 is now before the House Ways and Means Committee and we are asking for a committee vote ASAP. Senate Bill 826 was introduced to update the Mental Health Code by including Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) as Mental Health Professionals. The bill is sponsored by the Senate Health & Human Services (HHS) Committee Chair Curt VanderWall (R-Ludington).
WE HAVE LESS THAN TWO WEEKS LEFT IN THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION AND IF THE BILL DOES NOT MOVE FORWARD, IT WILL HAVE TO BE REINTRODUCED AND BEGIN THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS ALL OVER AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
We are asking all members and constituents to contact their legislators and ask them for their help in getting a vote on SB 826 so the bill can make it through the final stages of the legislative process and be signed into law.
