Governor Jerry Brown has already signed a couple of bills, others are awaiting action.

The California Medical Association says they are meant to put more doctors where they’re needed.

Dr. Paul Phinney of the California Medical Association says the bills aim to keep “intact team-based, physician led care. Which basically helps to expand capacity while maintaining quality and safety.”

Governor Brown already signed a physician-supported bill to speed up the licensing of doctors wanting to practice in underserved areas.
