Legislation & Politics

The Illinois Nurses Association is the voice for nursing in Springfield, protecting patients and nursing practice by working to pass legislation, monitoring harmful bills, testifying in committees and educating lawmakers and other stakeholders on issues impacting nurses and their patients. Policymakers turn to the INA for healthcare and nursing expertise. Every day of the legislative session, the INA advocates for legislation that protects patients and empowers nurses to do their best work.

The Illinois Nurse Association Political Action Committee contributes money and time to candidates and legislators who fight for patients and nurses. The INA-PAC carefully reviews voting records and conducts interviews to determine which candidates will stand up for patients and nurses in Illinois.

INA's Political Action Committee

The Illinois Nurses Association Political Action Committee (INA-PAC) is focused on candidate work. The PAC seeks to support and represent the interests of INA members. The INA-PAC interviews, endorses and supports candidates of both political parties for office who share the vision of the Illinois Nurses Association. These endorsements are also based on the candidate’s support for the nursing profession and quality access to healthcare for all of Illinois. The INA-PAC organizes grassroots activities to support endorsed candidates, including member communication, phone banks, and canvassing. The INA-PAC also supports many initiatives related to health policy, or revenue measures for programs important to nurses.

The INA PAC is funded through voluntary individual contributions from INA members and other donors who understand the importance of nursing in Illinois. Anyone can donate to the INA PAC.
