Great news! On February 20, 2020, Wisconsin passed AB546 on the Floor of the Assembly. Now the companion bill, SB492, will need to pass the Senate before the end of session in March. The Senate has already had a public hearing on the bill and is awaiting an Executive Committee vote.
A big heartfelt thankyou to Representative Felzkowski and her staff for her strong advocacy and for her expertise and personal story in supporting complementary and alternative health care services protected under the bill.
Send a Thank You to your Representative here. Wisconsin is close to becoming the 12th Safe Harbor state! Thank you to everyone who has joined NHFA and Wisconsin Health Freedom Coalition in getting the bill this far and who remains optimistic and active in getting it past the finish line! This proactive, solution-oriented legislation is needed to protect consumer access to unlicensed practitioners who provide complementary health care services in Wisconsin, including herbalists, traditional naturopaths, homeopaths, nutrition consultants, and many others.
Together we can protect complementary and alternative health care practitioners who are vulnerable to being charged criminally for practicing medicine – or another licensed health care profession – without a license. And, in turn, your right to access and utilize their wonderful healing services.
