A movement to keep emergency medical services alive in San Clemente continues, despite postponement last week of state legislation to allow a freestanding emergency room in Orange County’s southernmost city.

State Sen. Patricia Bates and Assemblyman Bill Brough issued a joint statement Thursday, expressing disappointment “that our legislation to preserve access to emergency care services in south Orange County hit a speedbump this week.”
