ADVOCACY EFFORTS WORKED - SINGLE PAYER DOES NOT MOVE FOWARD
Assembly Bill 1400 fails in State Assembly
AB 1400 which proposed a total overhaul of California’s health care system, failed passage in the State Assembly on January 31st after the bill’s author, Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) announced he did not have enough votes to secure passage and declined to call for a floor vote.

Business interests, including the UCAN chambers, opposed AB 1400 and its companion ACA 11, for two primary reasons: a complete overhaul of the state’s healthcare system is irresponsible and unnecessary, and the plan would propose the largest tax increase in the state’s history, when residents and businesses are already taxed too much.
