Legislation Update July 2014



All of the CANHR-sponsored bills are now pending in either the Senate or Assembly Appropriations Committees and won’t be heard again until the beginning of August.  NOW is the time to act!

The Legislature is in recess and most of the legislators are in their home districts. If you have a chance, make it a point to call or visit your district Senator or Assembly Member and ask them to support the RCFE Reform Act of 2014.

And ask them to support SB 1124 (Hernandez) which would reform the Medi-Cal recovery system and eliminate recovery from surviving spouses and for those aged 55+ unless they go into a nursing home, is now in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and will be heard at the beginning of August. Write to your Assembly members today.
