Even though the NC General Assembly was on their spring break last week, many bills were filed especially in the Senate to meet the filing deadline. Watch as NCMS Director of Legislative Relations Sue Ann Forrest, MPA describes some of the proposals introduced including a bill giving pharmacists authority to prescribe certain medications, several bills concerning medical liability, proposed legislation that would extend the mandatory deadline to connect to the state’s Health Information Exchange (HIE) and a slew of public health focused proposals. For a comprehensive list of all the many bills we’re tracking, please visit our Legislative blog here.

And please use our Action Alert, if you haven’t already, and encourage your colleagues to use it to let legislators know about our opposition to SB249/HB277 — the SAVE Act. Here is the link to that alert.
