ANA\California's 2024 Legislative Support, Watch, and Oppose Bills List!!

We are back!
We've compiled a list of bills that we have actively supported during this Legislative Session, either by signing coalition letters, sending support letters, or providing "Me-Too" testimony at hearings.
Please note that the absence of a bill from this list does not necessarily mean it has gone unnoticed. As the Legislative Session progresses, we are closely monitoring those bills as they are amended, as well as carefully considering input from legislative hearings, coalition partners, and fellow ANA\C members. Our position on certain bills may evolve as they move through the legislative process.
We aim to be diligent and responsive in our advocacy efforts, taking into account the latest developments and expert perspectives before determining our official position on pending legislation that impacts nursing and healthcare in California.
As a professional nursing organization, your insights, opinions, and advocacy voices are invaluable in shaping our approach and stance on bills that directly impact the nursing profession and the communities we serve. We value the diverse perspectives and want to hear your thoughts.
We look forward to hearing from you!

 A tactical solution to address opioid overdoses and prevent countless deaths is to increase the accessibility of naloxone in California.

To protect survivors' autonomy and respect survivors’ choices to ensure they have access to vital resources and services.
