Senate bill 31, which would require an RN Circulator for the duration of a procedure in every Vermont operating room, was heard in the House Health Care Committee. AORN member Christina McCaffrey and AORN government affairs manager Danielle Glover testified in support of the bill. S. 31 passed the Senate in early March. The House Health Care Committee plans to hear other testimony before taking a vote.
AORN Government Affairs will continue to advocate for S. 31and provide updates on its progression. If you are interested in helping with this bill or want to learn how to become involved in legislative efforts in your state, please contact Danielle Glover at firstname.lastname@example.org.
