Reform bill for Medical Board gutted
Sacramento Business Journal

Legislation once seeking major reform of the Medical Board of California was gutted and passed by a key Assembly committee Tuesday. The state agency that regulates doctors is facing sunset review this year, meaning it will cease to exist if lawmakers and the governor don’t reauthorize it. Senate Bill 304 is a vehicle to make changes and unwind or reauthorize the agency. Initially authored by Sen. Curren Price, it is now carried by Sen. Ted Lieu. Price left office to take a seat on the Los Angeles City Council on July 1.
