Last week, CHA issued an alert asking hospital leaders to urge state and federal lawmakers to allocate billions more in funding to support hospitals and health systems in their efforts to fight COVID-19 and help California safely reopen. A House bill has been introduced and is expected to be voted on Friday, so letters to representatives are needed before then.
CHA has developed a federal template letter. To find your representative’s contact information, visit www.house.gov/representatives/find. The contact information for Sens. Feinstein and Harris can be found here. Please email a copy of your letters to Dawn Vicari at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call or write your state senator and assemblymember this week, asking them to support hospitals’ budget requests of more than $4 billion. CHA has also developed a template letter for state legislators. Email your letter to Dawn Vicari at email@example.com so that it can be sent to legislators and their staff.
