Planned Parenthoods across the state are ramping up advocacy and lobbying efforts for the hospital merger bill SB 1094 (Lara, D-Los Angeles). This bill will give the Attorney General more authority in overseeing hospital merger activity.
The bill is facing stiff opposition from the CA Hospital Association (CHA), which has been working to defeat the passage of our bill so there's a news conference planned on the steps of the Capitol in Sacramento on August 5th.
Our Orange County caucus (which was integral in forming the women's coalition when Hoag hospital merged with St. Joseph's) is heading up this action for NWPC.
DATE: August 5th
TIME: 11:30 AM (But we plan to meet at 10:30 AM)

According to the Los Angeles Times, six weeks after the primary election, Democrat Betty Yee has officially finished 484 votes ahead of John A. Pérez for second-place in the state controller's race.
The close results spurred a recount by the former State Assembly Speaker but he has now called off those efforts and is supporting Betty as the Democratic candidate heading into Fall.
This race should be a reminder to everyone that EVERY vote matters because in this race, EVERY vote mattered.

The results of the June Primary show that only 20 percent of registered voters bothered casting a ballot. As a result, seven of our endorsed candidates didn't make it through to the General Election in November.
Women make up almost 52 percent of our state's registered voters which means it is within our power to elect progressive female candidates at every level in every district in every election -- if we just show up and vote!
To ensure we have a better turnout in the fall, we're urging you to spend this summer talking with your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to make sure they are registered and planning on voting in November.
Between now and November, we're hoping that you will donate and/or volunteer to the NWPC endorsed candidates in your area. If you're not sure who the endorsed candidates are, click here for the full list.
