State of Reform Podcast: Policy Leadership, California Democrats

May 24, 2017

By Kylie Walsh 

With strong majorities in the California Assembly and Senate, legislative Democrats have a range of health policy options to consider. We welcomed Senator Ed Hernandez, Chair of the Senate Health Committee, and Assemblymember Jim Wood, Chair of the Assembly Health Committee as panelists at our 2017 Northern California State of Reform Health Policy Conference to talk about those options. They discussed the challenges of legislating during a time of upheaval in policy at the federal level and answered questions from the audience.

This is the first part of a two-part episode. Check out the second half to hear from California Republicans!
