Protecting Healthcare

David submits postcards in support of AB 959 toJamie Callahan, the director for the Office of External Affairs for the Governor.

David has been leading the fight for patients facing skyrocketing prescription drug by proposing increasing the transparency of high-cost drug pricing in California and requiring pharmaceutical companies to report data to the state regarding the costs of producing high-priced drugs (AB 463).

After several prior legislative attempts, David successfully championed a bill that now requires the collection of data by California’s state health and human service agencies in order to address and eliminate disparities facing California’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities (AB 959).

As a member of the Assembly Health Committee, David was a co-author of some of the most important health care bills in 2015, to require vaccinations for children (SB 277), provide end-of-life options for terminally ill patients (AB X2-15), and expand Medi-Cal to all children regardless of immigration status (SB 4).
