NMNPC Lobbyist

Nurse practitioners in New Mexico enjoy a very favorable practice environment, but we have to be vigilant to issues that could change this situation. As a purely volunteer-driven organization, it's impossible for even the most dedicated and committed NMNPC members to spend the time it takes to stay well informed and maintain important contacts with key state legislators and other individuals who affect health policy in New Mexico. Consequently, NMNPC employs a lobbyist, Linda Siegle, to help us in those areas. She works year-round to monitor issues important to all nurse practitioners in New Mexico.

Some of Ms. Siegle's recent accomplishments for all nurse practitioners in New Mexico:

  • We no longer pay gross receipts tax for many health care services we provide.
  • We're eligible for a special rural tax credit of $3000 that comes directly off our income.
  • We can now declare death and sign death certificates.
  • We have continued to avoid legislation that would have created a physician-controlled "super board" charged to make recommendations to legislators for any change in our scope of practice.
  • We're included in Medical Home legislation.
Other on-going efforts of our lobbyist include:
  • Working to achieve malpractice equity.
  • Monitoring issues that may affect our practice environment.

Our lobbyist's work benefits members of NMNPC and also non-members - we ask every nurse practitioner in New Mexico to contribute what you can to help support this important activity. Thank you to all current contributors to our lobbyist fund! Please click the link below to make a donation to support our lobbyist:
