HCAOA and CAHSAH Annual Lobby Day
On Wednesday, March 14, HCAOA co-sponsored a lobby day jointly held with CAHSAH at Capitol Plaza Halls in Sacramento.The event was a huge success with over 75 people in attendance. The meeting started with a working breakfast, during which, attendees were welcomed by both CAHSAH and HCAOA leaders, including HCAOA Executive Director, Phil Bongiorno. Attendees were also given a brief “lobbying 101” explanation about what to expect during the day. Assembly Member Blanca Rubio was the guest speaker and talked about her role in the legislature both representing the interests of her constituents of her district and all citizens in the state of California. This was followed by a policy briefing on legislative priorities by HCAOA and CAHSAH lobbyists. After a brief luncheon the group then walked to the Capitol for appointments with their legislators. Members met with legislators and discussed issues pertinent to home care providers such as the need to defeat AB 2455.
