NCMS Political Pulse for September 10, 2021

It was a short and relatively uneventful week at the General Assembly this week as budget negotiations continue and we continue to advocate for our NCMS budget priorities. We expect to see a final budget document toward the end of September.

One item of note this week involves a letter to key legislators from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of NC voicing support for SB249/HB277 the SAVE Act. The NCMS opposes this legislation, which would grant independent practice to advance practice nurses. We have re-distributed our SAVE ACT Opposition Letter September 2021 describing our — and many other specialty and county societies’ — opposition. Be sure to read your NCMS Morning Rounds on Monday for more information on this issue.

Watch the video.
