    Thanks, Karen!
    I'm just getting started.

    Does the ANA or anyone else have a list of senators and congressmen who have voted for or against nursing legislation, or who and who hasn't co-sponsored some of the above bills?

    Senator Boniar's on the list.

    I E-mailed the Senator earlier this year regarding the nursing shortage.

    I'm proud he's supporting us.

    Hmm I know who I'm re-electing!!!

    There is a contact button on ANA website. You could ask the ANA PAC or the governmental affairs dept. Usually its more a list of who HAS co-sponsored a bill & if your reps name is not it he hasnt. YOu could also contact your particular representative & tell him you want to know how he voted on a certain bill. Sometimes that info is on his website too.
