The following statement is being issued by C. Duane Dauner , President/CEO, California Hospital Association: Since its introduction, Assembly Bill (AB) 975 has faced bipartisan opposition. Today it was scheduled to have been considered in the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee. That hearing has been canceled, however, and the bill removed from the committee’s jurisdiction. It’s clear that AB 975 is now on life support thanks to yet another series of last-minute amendments designed to save it from scrutiny and tough questions.
