**Healthcare Advocacy Request - HB 1121**
HB 1121, the Healthcare Worker Assault Bill, will be voted on soon – this afternoon. This bill equalizes the penalties for assaulting a healthcare worker in a healthcare setting. Currently, it is a class C felony to knowingly assault a healthcare worker, but ONLY in a hospital emergency room. HB 1121 would include healthcare workers throughout a healthcare facility.
Please email your two district Representatives and ask them to vote YES on HB 1121.
