eNLC Bill First 2018 Bill to Colorado Governor

Posted: January 17, 2018

The first bill to the desk of Gov. John Hickenlooper in the 2018 legislative session is a bipartisan agreement that assures that many Colorado licensed RNs will retain their compact license status.

SB18-027 passed on 3rd Reading in the Colorado House of Representatives this morning.

Upon the Governor’s signature, the bill will go into effect January 19, 2018, assuring no lapse in licensure for current compact licensed RNs.
The bill’s proponents sent a “Thank you” to the more than 80 sponsors from both the Colorado House and Senate.  A special thank you went to the key sponsors, Senators Smallwood & Todd, and Representatives McKean and Kraft-Tharp.

The bill was first introduced Jan. 10 and passed seven calendar days later.

The Colorado Nurses Association thanked the work of Megan Wagner of Brandeberry McKenna Public Affairs for her leadership in this process.

Senate Passes RAISE Family Caregivers Act, Bill Will Go to President for Signature

Posted: Jan. 9, 2018

The U.S. Senate passed the RAISE (Recognize, Assist, Include Support and Engage) Family Caregivers Act on Monday night, a significant victory for NAHC and all allies of home health and caregivers, the National Association of Home Care & Hospice reports. NAHC championed this legislation and helped usher its passage through both the House and the Senate and we look forward to it being signed into law by the president.

The RAISE Family Caregivers Act will:

  • Implement the federal Commission on Long-Term Care’s bipartisan recommendation that Congress require the development of a national strategy to support family caregivers.
  • Create an advisory body to bring together relevant federal agencies and others from the private and public sectors to advise and make recommendations.
  • Identify specific actions that government, communities, providers, employers, and others can take to recognize and support family caregivers and be updated annually.
