Urgent Action Needed

Speaker of the Assembly Blocks SB 562 from Moving Forward

On Friday, California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-63) moved to keep SB 562 in the Rules Committee, preventing the Assembly from voting on the single payer healthcare bill.

With federal attacks on our healthcare moving forward, we know SB 562 is the ONLY solution that saves billions and covers everyone. With 70% support in California, Speaker Rendon is standing between us and guaranteed healthcare for all.

There is still time to reverse his decision and allow assemblymembers to vote on the Healthy California Act, which would provide healthcare to all Californians. Please take as many of the actions below as you can:

1. Call, email, and tweet Assemblymember Rendon
916-319-2063

Twitter: @Rendon63rd

What to say when you call:

“I strongly support S.B. 562, the Healthy California Act, because every Californian deserves guaranteed healthcare. I’m urging Speaker Rendon to stop doing secret insider deals on our healthcare. He must move SB 562 forward as the best solution to the federal attacks on our healthcare. No other solution saves billions and covers everyone with medical, dental, vision, mental health and more.”

2. “Inaction = Death” event at Anthony Rendon's District Office
