Help ER docs in Florida and the US – ACTION NOW !!!

Members and Friends of AEP, ER docs in Florida need your help TODAY. NOW!!!

Please read and act below.

The Florida Chapter of ACEP and others are at it again. The attack of non-EM-RT docs is on again. Senate Bill 1184 in Florida is scheduled for a hearing in Tallahassee Wednesday March 12 at 2:30pm. The bills unintended consequences will lead to:

increased staffing shortages in rural and small ERs

increased migration of ER docs out of Florida
We need you to act today. The following are members of the Fla Senate committee hearing the bill on Wednesday. Please take a moment to email, fax and/or call these legislators and lets bombard them with the other side of this issue. All you need to do is explain who you are and that you oppose this bill. There is power in numbers. If you have friends or family who are voters in Florida please have them to make calls too.

On the other side of the camp is the Florida chapter of ACEP who is having their annual legislative meeting in Tallahassee that very same day and they will be out in force.
