Contact your legislator today and ask that they sign-on as a co-sponsor to LRB 2300/P1 and LRB-2384/1
We have achieved the first step in moving toward passage of Workplace Violence against Nurses legislation. A legislative draft that creates a criminal penalty for battery to a nurse has been developed. Five legislators have come forward to be the authors of the legislation. The Senate author is Senator Dale Kooyenga of the 5th Senate District. The following four State Representatives are co-authors, Gae Magnafici from the 28th Assembly District, Cindi Duchow from the 99th Assembly District, Paul Tittl from the 25th Assembly District and Mike Kuglitsch from the 84th Assembly District.
The authors of the legislation are asking their legislative colleagues to sign-on as co-sponsor. WNA and these legislators need your assistance. Please contact your legislator today asking that they sign-on as a co-sponsor. The more legislators that we can get to sign-on the better the chance of passage.
