NM Legislature, Day 11

Health Security Act Update

There’s no movement on the Health Security Act (SB 279 and HB 295) just yet—to stay in the loop, sign up for our email alerts. First committee in the Senate is Public Affairs; first committee in the House is Health & Human Services.

While you’re waiting, check out two recent news pieces on Health Security: an editorial in the Las Cruces Sun-News and an article in the Albuquerque-area Alibi. For additional media coverage, take a look at our In the Media page.

And if you’re in the mood for more reading, the 2019 Health Security Act is posted at the bottom of our The Plan page, along with a table of contents and an index to help you navigate your way through the bill. The Plan Summary is also useful in this regard.

Campaign Member Organizations

We have seven new member organizations!

  • Indivisible Nob Hill

  • Rio Arriba County Community Health Council

  • International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 611

  • Las Vegas/San Miguel Chamber of Commerce

  • CWA Legislative Council

  • Centro Savila

  • Sandoval County Health Council

What do Campaign member organizations do? They publicly support passage of the Health Security Act (in their communities and, for those who can, at the legislature); they talk about Health Security to their members and associates; and they encourage their membership and others to individually get involved by signing up for Health Security email alerts and contacting their legislators. 

When we advocate for the Health Security Act, we have the power of our 160+ member organizations behind us.
