SB 562 Held Over For 2018 Legislative Session 

 

Capitol and PalmsSB 562 Lara-D, Atkins-D is the single payer health insurance bill. The bill passed the Senate mostly on a party line vote. It was submitted to the State Assembly on June 1, 2017. The bill had no funding mechanism, or other key details as to how the program could actually work. The bill was opposed by CALPASC and a large employer coalition.

 

Thankfully, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon advised that he would hold the bill until the next legislative session, until there are actual details or an effective funding mechanism. CALPASC is thankful this bill is not moving forward in 2017, but there are 12 other bad bills that CALPASC and its Government Affairs Committee are opposed to. We will keep membership notified when they are needed to contact their state legislators to vote against these multiple bad bills. You can see a copy of the latest version of SB 562 HERE
