AB 689 (W. Carrillo, D-Los Angeles) Details
Held in Senate Appropriations Committee on Sept. 1.
AB 689 is CHA/SEIU’s co-sponsored bill to help address the health care workforce crisis. The proposal would provide health care employees with priority registration when enrolling in community college courses and would also require that community colleges set aside at least 15% of slots in their impacted courses for current health care employees. This would ensure that health care employees have full access to the courses they need to complete their training as quickly as possible.
