Legislative Update on MCNP SAVE Bill

The House and Senate versions of our SAVE Bill for Full Practice Authority (H.1867andS.1330), remain before theJoint Committee on Public Health(JCPH). We have been given a tentative hearing date at the end of September that we will share once confirmed.

The MCNP Legislative team has started to prepare formal testimony and encourages anyone experiencing patient care challenges under the current MA licensing restrictions to share their story by submitting written testimony. Please contact us for submission guidelines if you interested in learning more.

The timing of our grassroots campaigns during this session will be strategically coordinated with key points in the legislative cycle. Please be on the lookout for a CALL TO ACTIONwhich will be sent out prior to our hearing date in September.

What You Can Do Now:

Get to Know Your Legislators:
Go to look up the names of your State Representative and State Senator, read their biographies, and see what committees they sit on. If they sit on the Joint Committee of Public Health, Health Care Finance or Ways and Means Committees, YOUR ADVOCACY efforts this session will be critical.

Introduce Yourself to Your Legislators:
Send your legislators a personal email letting them know you are a Nurse Practitioner interested in health policy, are a strong supporter of the SAVE Bill and offer to serve as a NP resource on health-related issues in your area of expertise. (

Donate to the MCNP Political Action Committee:
Since state and federal laws prohibit the use of member dues for the purpose of contributing to political campaigns, the PAC is the vehicle by which we can make donations to key legislators, foster strategic relationships, and raise our visibility at the State House. PAC members attend countless fundraising events throughout the year and need your financial support in order to represent your voice.

Support our Social Media Efforts:
We will be using social media to influence legislators as we advance our policy agenda in this legislative session. For our messages to carry weight, we need a large following. Please support our efforts and follow us on our social media platforms at the links below and like and share our posts.

If you have any additional questions or are interested in getting more involved in supporting our legislative efforts, please

We hope you have time to relax and re-charge in the remaining weeks of the Summer as there will be much work to be done when the legislative session gets into full swing after the Summer recess.

We thank you for your continued engagement and support and remain committed to securing Full Practice Authority for Massachusetts NPs!
