Legislative Alert: Please Call Monday!

California Nurses Association, 8/15/14

This coming week critical votes may be taken in the California legislature and your voice and calls are needed to make sure the outcome benefits patients and the people who care for them, YOU, the Registered Nurses.

We are asking you to make two calls to your representatives by this Monday, August 18th. Remember, their staffs are there to hear what you have to say and are used to getting calls from the people from their districts. Each call will take less than a minute!

  • Call your State Senator: Tell her/him:  I am a California registered nurse. Please support AB 2533, the Patient Choice Act, so that my patients can go to the doctor or hospital for the medical care they need without facing financial ruin if they go outside their restrictive insurance network. 
  • Call your Assemblymember:  Tell her/him: I am a California registered nurse. I urge you to oppose SB455 because it would undermine hard-won gains in RN staffing ("nurse-to-patient ratios" ) and would be an enormous step backward. Please keep patients safe by voting no on this bill. Don’t weaken our nurse-to-patient ratios by allowing this bill to go through!

Note: We are directing calls to Democrats only because in the case of these two bills they are the votes that will make the difference. See below for simple instructions:
