SD House Bill 1126 Signed Into Law
Governor Dennis Daugaard signed HB1126 into law on March 22, 2918! SD ENA has endorsed this bill from its inception. This bill clarifies the aspects of a medical forensic examination and will eliminate victims from receiving bills for their exams.
SD ENA Government Affairs Chair, Sandra Ruesch, testified on behalf of SD ENA and Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. We are so proud of Sandra and all our members who advocate for our patients.
More information on the bill may be found HERE
If you'd like to become more involved with advocacy, please join our Government Affairs Committee. Reach out to Sandra for more information.
