AFP-PA Applauds Lawmakers for Passing Key Health Care Reform

Sep 29, 2020 by AFP

HARRISBURG, Pa. – Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) commended the passage of HB100 out of the Professional Licensure Committee, a bill that increases nurse practitioners’ scope of practice. The grassroots group launched its Health Care Reimagined campaign in late May, focusing on SB25 and HB100 to help those impacted by COVID-19. AFP’s campaign details a positive vision for health care that facilitates immediate, meaningful improvements to America’s health care system.

AFP-PA State Director Ashley Klingensmith issued the following statement:  

“Removing these barriers to health care will allow us to continue to put more health care workers on the front lines of the pandemic. Increasing the level of care these capable nurses and non-physician providers can provide means that more patients can access treatment at lower costs,”

“AFP-PA’s thousands of activists advocated for these reforms in multiple legislative sessions, so to see movement on this in the house is rewarding for many. Thank you, Rep. Topper, for your sponsorship and Chairman Hickernell for advancing this reform that will increase the delivery of quality care for Pennsylvanians.”
