Press Conference to Highlight CHA-Sponsored Bill
April 10 event will raise awareness of need to rescind rate cuts to DP/SNFs

A press conference highlighting AB 900 (Alejo, D-Salinas) — a CHA-sponsored bill that would rescind rate cuts to hospital-based skilled-nursing facilities — will be held April 10 at 10 a.m. in room 317 at the State Capitol. The event will include legislators, hospital representatives and others in an attempt to raise awareness of the devastating impact the cuts will have on patients and communities. As the kick-off for CHA’s efforts to build support for AB 900, the press event is part of a grassroots advocacy campaign to engage community and opinion leaders. Other components of the campaign will include member impact videos, a media tool kit and suggestions for additional ways members can participate in legislative advocacy. CHA encourages all members interested in tomorrow’s press conference to attend.
