Update on Healthy California Act, SB 562, universal single payer health bill:

Our elected Legislators need to know how strongly supporters feel that SB 562 should be heard and voted on in the Assembly beginning in January 2018. 

On October 23 and 24, there will be afternoon hearings held by the Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage. The Healthy California Act Campaign is sponsoring rallies on the State Capitol North Steps, 1315 10th St., Sacramento, starting about 11 a.m.  both days, in support of SB 562. 
Action 1.  If you know people in the Sacramento / San Francisco area, who are supportive of Medicare for All for California,  please let them know about this rally. The more people on those steps, the greater the impact on not only the Committee, but on all California Legislators. Of course, you are invited as well.
Action 2. If you haven't already done so, express your support for SB 562 locally to Assem. Monique Limón.     805 564-1649
