The COVID-19 pandemic and projected 2020-21 state budget deficits have significantly affected the legislative efforts of every member of the Legislature. Here is a list of my legislative efforts for 2020. You can click on the bill number for detailed information including bill text, status and analyses.
I authored the following legislation which was signed into law in 2016:
AB 72 – Health Care Coverage: Out-of-Network Coverage
This bill was authored by Asm. Jim Wood and five Democrats and Republicans. The bill will protect patients from the unfair practice of receiving surprise bills for healthcare when it was provided, unknowingly to the patient, by providers outside their health plan’s network.
