Our newest Single-payer bill, SB 562 (Lara), the Healthy California Act, has been recently introduced! We will be garnering endorsements from organizations as a primary activity to support the bill.

Activities and membership are increasing quite a bit thanks to the newly revived conversation around the ACA/Obamacare. Four new HCA chapters are newly formed or in the process of forming (San Diego being the latest to incorporate).
