Senate Health Committee to hold special hearing in San Diego

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Dear friends and neighbors,

I am pleased to announce that the California Senate Health Committee will be holding a special hearing this Friday, March 24, in San Diego, focusing on the impacts that the proposed American Health Care Act are likely to have on our state.

The hearing will take place from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Fowler Family Ballroom, in the Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center, at San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Drive.

The American Health Care Act is the bill introduced in Congress by U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan. It is proposed to replace the Affordable Care Act, which has provided healthcare coverage to an additional 5 million people in California alone – through the Covered California healthcare exchange and the expansion of Medicaid. Our state’s uninsured rate recently reached a record-low 7.1%.

I am privileged to serve on the Senate Health Committee and look forward to taking part in this critical discussion about California’s future, and I want to thank the committee chairman, Senator Ed Hernandez, for holding this important hearing in my home city of San Diego.

The hearing is open to the public. Parking for the Alumni Center is in PS 7, located on 55th Street, across from Viejas Arena. Visitors must purchase a permit from the pay machine. The permit is valid only in the lot where it is purchased. Find a map here.

If you have any questions, please call my San Diego office: 619-645-3133.

Warmly,

Toni Atkins
Senator, 39th District
