The Healthy California Act (SB 562) has passed the CA Senate and is on its way to the Assembly.  We are a step closer to guaranteeing health care for all Californians.
Hannah-Beth Jackson voted YES, with encouragement from your calls.  Let’s ask Assemblymember Monique Limón for her support too as the bill is now in the Assembly. The “Amherst Study” cited below shows that it can be done.

Script (Limón):  I’m calling today to ask you to support SB 562, the Healthy California Act.  Now is the time for bold action to ensure that Californians have access to affordable and quality health care.The “Amherst Study” proves it can be done.

Monique Limón (CA-37): SAC (916) 319-2037, SB (805) 564-1649, VTA (805) 641-3700
