Thank you to the sponsors of HB 286!

Kentucky Representatives who want to increase access to quality health care in the Commonwealth are backing HB 286! If you don't see your Rep as a sponsor of this bipartisan bill, ask them to support modernizing Kentucky laws to remove barriers to care. 

House Floor Leader Bam Carney

KANPNM greatly appreciates the leadership and initiative of House Floor Leader John "Bam" Carney for his tireless work during the summer and fall of 2019 on behalf of APRNs and the formation of HB 286. Rep. Carney worked to bring KANPNM's Legislative Team to the table with other groups and stakeholders to inform and outline the initiative to bring about the end of CAPA-CS in Kentucky.  

Thank you, Bam!
