Los Angeles, CA – On Wednesday the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United and other supporters will join two state senators to celebrate introduction of a Medicare for all style bill for Californians.

SB 562, The Healthy California Act, would create universal healthcare for California residents with effective cost controls.

The nurses union, working with the Healthy California Campaign, are the primary backers of the bill. They will mark the introduction of the bill Wednesday with a rally supporting it in Sacramento.

SB 562 says it is “the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would establish a comprehensive universal single-payer health coverage program and a healthcare cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state.”
