AN ACT CONCERNING THE GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 4413

File Copy No.: 101

House Calendar No.: 310

Senate Calendar No.: 108


OFA Fiscal Note

NO FISCAL IMPACT

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and replaces it with language that does not result in a fiscal impact. It allows advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who have graduated from a two-year residency from an American Association of Colleges nurse practitioner residency program to practice independently. This does not alter APRN licensure and regulatory responsibilities of the Department of Public Health.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge. Whenever applicable, agency data is consulted as part of the analysis, however final products do not necessarily reflect an assessment from any specific department.
