Meeting with Asm. Burke:
On Monday, March 20, 2017, ANA\C legislative team met with Asm. Burke and Ms. Contreras (Asm. Burke’s Leg. Assistant) at the State Capitol where the 2nd term Assemblywoman from AD 62 (LA County, El Segundo to Venice) also serves as the Assistant Speaker Pro Tempore. Asm. Burke was interested in our activities and inquired about our ANA\C Public Policy Agenda. We discussed access to care, full scope of practice, safe work environment and the role nurses can play in combatting human trafficking. We offered our policy expertise as a resource and thanked her for her ongoing support of nursing, especially of Certified Nurse Midwives and their quest for full practice authority. We discussed this legislative session’s effort to advance nursing practice in AB 1612 (Burke).
