AB 1863 (Jones) Amended

Second Round of Calls & Letters

The DRA Licensure Bill, AB 1863 (Jones), is set to be heard in the Senate Human Services Committee on June 24 at 1:30 PM in the State Capitol.

Recent amendments have not addressed our concerns regarding the bill’s lack of consumer protections and CAHSAH maintains its âOppose Unless Amendedâ position on this measure.

It is critical that we advocate our opposition to the amended version of this measure prior to the hearing. Please contact all members of the Senate Human Services Committee (listed below) and ask that they vote “NO” on AB 1863 unless it is further amended to include real consumer protections.

In addition to calling, please fax a letter of opposition on AB 1863 to your Senate Member’s office. If you are faxing a letter, please also fax a copy to CAHSAH’s Policy Director, Jennifer Gabales at (916) 641-5881 to ensure that it is included in the bill’s analysis. CAHSAH will hand deliver a packet of member opposition letters to the Committee office on June 16.
