CalCare — a bill that would create a universal, Medicare-for-All system for the state of California — passed the Assembly Appropriations Committee last week. This is the second major hurdle for AB 1400, and now the bill officially moves to the full Assembly floor for a vote!
Last week’s major milestone would not have been possible without action by hundreds of working people. Last week 130 volunteers joined CalCare phone bank parties and made 20,000 calls to voters in districts of Appropriations Committee members.
All of this work added together is what will get us across the finish line and bring historic health care reform to California.
