SB 154 is AN ACT making oral contraceptives available without a prescription.
This bill is similar to HB 264 presented at the NHNA Legislative Town Hall Forum. HB 264 was subsequently amended to establish a commission to study this issue. NHNA’s Commission on Government Affairs is in favor of establishing a Commission to study this issue but has some concerns about moving forward with an ACT to authorize pharmacists to make oral contraceptives available without a prescription as it is currently drafted, e.g. no discussion of patient education.
A hearing on this bill was held on February 2, 2017, 10:00 AM, in Room 101 LOB. This bill was re-referred to Senate Committee on Health & Human Services on 3/30/17.
