Last Minute Amendments Can’t Fix AB 975
by C. Duane Dauner, President/CEO, California Hospital Association

The California Hospital Association (CHA) remains strongly opposed to Assembly Bill (AB) 975, which is scheduled for consideration on Tuesday April 2, 2013 by the state Assembly Health Committee. AB 975 replaces local control with a “guilty until proven innocent” burden on well-managed hospitals and impacts the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
