On June 20, 2019, at 10:10 PM, in the waning hours of the 2019 legislative season, the NYS Assembly voted in favor, 103 to 18, of A01162-A. This bill will allow PAs in NYS to complete and sign medical orders for life sustaining treatment for their patients. Now that the bill has passed the Senate and Assembly, it still needs to be signed by Governor Cuomo. We will continue to keep you posted on the status.
Congratulations to all NYS PAs on this wonderful accomplishment! Thank you to all called, wrote and advocated for our profession!
