NUHW lobbies for California’s universal health care bill
Dozens of NUHW members and allies converged on the Capitol Friday to urge lawmakers to support SB562, a trailblazing bill that would make California the first state to guarantee health coverage for all residents.
Supporters of the bill, authored by State Sens. Ricardo Lara and Toni Atkins, boarded buses across the state for Lobby Day, which coincided with the start of the California Democratic Party Convention. Needless to say, supporters of universal health care made their presence felt at the convention.
Meanwhile, our folks were meeting with legislative leaders and enjoying the festivities.
