State Sen. Tony Strickland of Moorpark has helped write a bill that would reinstate the California Healthy Families Program if passed.
Following is an announcement issued by his office Tuesday morning:
(Sacramento, CA) – Sen. Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) has joint-authored Senate Bill 301, which seeks to reinstate the successful Healthy Families Program.
“Many of my constituents were devastated by the elimination of the Healthy Families Program and their access to healthcare was threatened. I am honored to be a joint-author of SB 301, which will reinstate this program,” Sen. Strickland said. “Healthy Families has been incredibly successful in providing access to healthcare to over 800,000 California children across the state.”
“I’ve worked in the past to get my constituents enrolled in the Healthy Families Program to make sure they receive quality healthcare,” Sen. Strickland added. “I’m hopeful the Governor will work with legislators on both sides of the aisle and reinstate a program that’s been a positive alternative for so many kids in California.”
Note: A similar bill, Assembly Bill 826, of which Sen. Strickland is a principal co-author, is also making its way through the legislature.
