I received the following urgent bulletin from Single Payer Now a few minutes ago. The California State Senate leadership is deciding whether to move SB 810 (Single Payer for California) to the floor of the Senate for a vote, or let it die. As the bulletin makes clear
A key factor in making their decision will be the support they hear from other State Senators.
So if you are a California resident you need to call your State Senator now. Not tomorrow, not in a few hours -- because it will slip your mind and then it will be after 5:00 PM when you remember. NOW.
Urgent SB 810 Alert
Decision to Move SB 810 to a Senate Floor to Be Made on Thursday at 10am - 24 Hours from now.
We Need Everyone to Contact Legislators Today (Wed)
Dear Supporters of SB 810, the California Healthcare Insurance Act,
We need thousands of calls or emails to Senators Steinberg, Kehoe, and your State Senator today.
On Thursday, January 19, State Senate leaders Darrel Steinberg (Senate pro tem) and Christine Kehoe (chair of Appropriations Committee) will decide if SB 810 will be voted on by the full Senate. A key factor in making their decision will be the support they hear from other State Senators. We need the other Senators to let them know that their phones are ringing off the hook from constituents.
Please call to make a simple request that you want the Senate to pass SB 810.
SB 810 will deliver healthcare to everyone and spend our resources wisely by removing the insurance industry from our lives.
Senator Steinberg can be reached at
916-651-4006 or Senator.Steinberg@senate.ca.gov
Senator Kehoe can be reached at
916-651-4039 or Senator.Kehoe@senate.ca.gov
