Dear Supporter,

The next three days are absolutely crucial for our fight to pass SB 1005, the Health For All" Act, by Senator Lara. 

The Senate Appropriations Committee heard the bill the morning of Monday, May 19, 2014, and subsequently placed it in the "suspense" file. This Friday May 23rd, the committee will hold a hearing to decided whether bills on suspense move forward to the Senate floor. 

Can you take a few minutes to help push this vital bill forward?

1. Call Senate Appropriations Committee Members
