Capitol Hill: Step by Step

March 29, 2022


One in every 40 voters in the state of Pennsylvania is a registered nurse. It is more important than ever to vote as our country faces times of adversity and hardship. If you will be out of your home state or county it is critical you apply for a mail-in ballot or absentee ballot by the deadlines for your legislative district. Rules and regulations do change from state to state therefore make sure to pay close attention to information regarding your state.

SNAP Proposed Bylaw Amendments

The SNAP Board of Directors are proposing several amendments to the current bylaws to be presented to the SNAP House of Delegates at the SNAP Convention in November.  The Board reviewed the entire document, and is proposing language that is more current and correct to current practices.

All Delegates need to take time to review the document and bring any questions or concerns to the voting body.  In addition, if you want to ask a question in advance of the House of Delegates, you can email John Palmer, SNAP Legislative Coordinator, at
