Assembly Appropriations Committee passes our “Stop Repeat Offender Hospitals” bill, SB 1288

On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, the Committee overwhelmingly approved our bill, 12 to 5! Getting through this committee brings us one step closer to making sure this bill becomes a law. Next step: Assembly Floor vote. Stay tuned!

Here’s how the committee voted…

Assemblymember Lorena S. Gonzalez Fletcher (Chair) Dem. Yes
Assemblymember Frank Bigelow (Vice Chair) Rep. No
Assemblymember Richard Bloom Dem. Yes
Assemblymember Rob Bonta (a Co-Author of our bill) Dem. Yes

Unfortunately, the Republican Caucus is officially against our bill. Last year, though, they supported our Whistleblower Protection bill, AB 1102.
