California POPTs Bill Dies in Senate Committee

Just moments ago, AB 783, (Mary Hayashi D-Hayward) which would override current California state law preventing medical corporations from employing physical therapists and referring patients to their own clinics, died in State Senate Committee.

Five yes votes were needed to move the bill out of Committee, and there were 3 Ayes and 2 Nos and 4 Senators didn't vote.

Aye votes were Vargas, Correa and Wyland.

No votes were Price (Chair) and Walters.

The Chair declared the bill failed to move out of committee and allowed for reconsideration at a later date.

It is unclear when the bill will be reheard, but we will keep you posted.

Thanks to all of you that sent emails to your state legislators.


Thanks to those members of the California chapter who fought this fight for all of us.
