CHA Urges Hospitals to Contact Lawmakers as Seismic Bill Heads to Assembly Health Committee

What’s happening: CHA issued an alert encouraging members to send letters to their state Assembly members in support of Senate Bill 1432, which offers important modifications to the 2030 seismic standards related to timing and financial support.  

What else to know: The deadline to submit letters is June 17. The CHA-sponsored legislation passed out of the state Senate in May on a near unanimous vote. It is scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Health Committee on June 25.  

CHA is also asking hospitals to encourage their community partners to submit letters to lawmakers. See the alert for resources and information on how to send letters.
