We did it!

We did it! Yesterday Governor Northam signed HB 1737, which will be effective July 1, 2021. In the meantime, NPs with two or more years of clinical experience can continue practicing autonomously under EO 57 during Virginia’s COVID-19 state of emergency. Thanks to everyone who supported our efforts, and congratulations!

HB 1737: Ask the Governor to sign our bill!

HB 1737 has been communicated to Governor Northam. Because this has been done with sufficient time left until the Special Session concludes, it is now considered a seven-day bill. This means the Governor now has until midnight on February 26 to sign, veto, or amend the legislation.

Contact Governor Northam now and ask him to sign HB 1737!

HB 1737: Our bill passed the Senate

Thank you for all of your work!

Great news! Our bill passed the Senate. Depending on when our bill is communicated to the Governor, there is a possibility he will sign, amend or VETO this legislation prior to February 27, when the General Assembly adjourns. Otherwise the Governor will have 30 days to do so after they adjourn.

We will be in communication with the Governor’s office as he reviews the bill.
