CHA to Provide Updates on Seismic Legislation at April 3 Webinar

What’s happening: On April 3 from 9-10 a.m. (PT), CHA will host a webinar sharing recent developments on CHA’s sponsored bill, Senate Bill (SB) 1432 (Caballero, D-Merced), which offers important modifications to the 2030 seismic compliance standards.  

What else to know: Ensuring seismic relief field-wide, as well as addressing rural hospitals’ unique concerns, is one of CHA’s four key priorities for this year.  

SB 1432 would:  

  • Provide hospitals an extension, until 2038, to meet 2030 seismic requirements. 
  • Introduce additional disaster planning requirements for hospitals. 
  • Require the state to analyze, and report to the Legislature on, the cost and access to care impacts of the hospital construction necessary to meet 2030 requirements.
