Sacramento Bee

Things are starting to pick up in the Legislature as bills advance to committee hearings. Here are a couple Capitol Alert has its collective eye on today. Nonprofit hospitals: The California Nurses Association and the California Hospital Association are clashing over Assembly Bill 975, a bill co- authored by Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, and Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, that would reconsider how much philanthropy nonprofit hospitals need to engage in to retain their tax-exempt status. The Assembly Health Committee is hearing the bill at 1:30 p.m. in room 4202.
