Political Action

State Involvement

Nurse practitioners can use personal political involvement when important health care issues become the subject of legislation. The NMNPC Board of Directors makes every effort to be aware of these kinds of issues as they arise, using their own knowledge, our members' knowledge and the services of our lobbyist.

When an issue arises during the NM legislative session, it's often helpful for NPs to be present at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe or to contact their representatives or senators about the issue. When this happens, NMNPC will contact our members, ask for action and tell members exactly what action we need.

When needed, members may use the links on the right to download a list with contact information for all Representatives or Senators, find the names of your legislators, or determine the status of specific bills. The Bill Finder link allows you to look up bills by number, sponsor, subject, or other certain criteria. The Bill Locator link is a page listing all current bills and includes the number, title, sponsor, and actions taken to date of each bill. You can also:

  • Call the legislative switchboard during the legislative session to contact your legislator or a legislative staff member.
  • Call the Legislative Council Service for technical questions about the New Mexico Legislature website or for general questions about the legislature.

 


National Involvement

For political action on national issues, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is the best source of information. Our NMNPC AANP State Representative communicates important information on national issues that affect nurse practitioners or the care we give our patients. You can also visit the AANP Advocacy Center for information on current federal legislation that's important to NPs. The Advocacy Center makes direct communication with New Mexico's senators and representatives easy. You can also use the links on the right to contact our New Mexico congressional members.

If you don't know who your US representative is, visit the US House of Representatives website and click on the Find Your Representative link. You can also download a map of New Mexico showing the congressional districts here.

Use the links to the right for other national information and contact information.
