Current Bills

December 2019 Update:  In an average session up to 3,000 bills are introduced with only 250 to 400 passing. FLANP 's goal to to stay on top of these bills that affect APRN's in Florida. We will promote or stop bills that affect us.
The Legislative Committee is currently tracking over 40 bills that may affect APRN's, the two of pressing need are the independent practice (Bill 607) and the sunshine bill (Bill 707).
HB607 was filed by Rep. Pigman in the House in Novemeber. We do not at this time have a similar bill in the Senate. The House bill doesn't include PA's, however it may be amended later.  It is on the Health Quality Subcommittee agenda for 12/11/19.
HB707 is a sunshine bill which says that ALL statues get reviewed every 10 years to see if it is still relevant, if not they are repealed. This bill will sunset the Nurse Practice Act (includes statutes 464.01-464.027) if not renewed by the legislator on July 1, 2023.
These are our top two bills. This may change as the session starts on January 14, 2020. Some of the Legislative Committee members have volunteered to help sort thought the massive amount of bills.  Stan Whittaker, our Legislative Committee Chair is training them on issues and wordage that we need to watch for.  If you are interested in this process and would like to join in on our call, please email us at
