HARRISBURG, Pa. – Today, Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) applauds Gov. Wolf’s decision to sign these two key bills into law will expand access to health care across the Commonwealth. The grassroots group supported these bills that will make temporary waivers and licensure flexibilities proven to be effective during COVID-19 permanent.
AFP-PA State Director Ashley Klingensmith issued the following statement:
“Signing these two reforms into law sends a clear signal that our lawmakers in Harrisburg understand the value nurses bring to benefit patients and the need to empower them even more within their respective fields by broadening their reach. We are optimistic that these reforms will inspire additional consideration for further innovations in telemedicine and expanded scope of practice with the Health Care Innovations act. Our lawmakers must continue to pave the way for the removal of additional barriers to continue to increase accessibility to higher quality and more affordable care for Pennsylvanians as we exit the pandemic.”
