Welcome to the NASL Issue & Advocacy Center

Mounting public and private pressure to restructure the nation's healthcare delivery system, a growing number of elderly Americans and limited financial resources have created an uncertain environment for long term and post acute care providers. 

NASL's advocacy efforts serve to provide your organization with the knowledge and tools necessary to ensure that your voice is heard in the congressional health care debate. The role of an informed constituent is a crucial one; you have the expertise and the local knowledge to provide valuable information to your legislators.

NASL encourages members to become involved - whether it's by scheduling a meeting with your elected representative, writing a letter, or making a phone call.
