UPDATE: It’s not official yet (as it has not been posted on the New Mexico Legislative website), but Sharon Argenbright, MSN, RN, and President of District 1199 NM of the National Union of Hospital and Healthcare Employees was told that Senator Lopez’s SB 670 – The Patient Safe Staffing Act of 2019 (click here for link to copy of SB 670) – will have a hearing before the Senate Public Affairs Committee on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.


Time is of the essence, so anyone who can show up that day and offer support should mark their calendars and check back here later today or tomorrow for confirmation on day and time.


While the session is closing in on the last two weeks, there is still more than enough time to make this bill a law, if legislators will DO THE RIGHT THING – we all just need to remind legislators that Nurses advocate for their patients and community, and the public trusts us more than any other profession (84% of America trust nurses).


Stay Tuned!
