Sacramento, CA — UFCW Western States Council released the following statement from Executive Director Jim Araby in support of Speaker Anthony Rendon’s formation of the Assembly Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage:
“UFCW strongly supports this genuine effort by Speaker Rendon to convene legislative hearings that will openly and comprehensively address the barriers to enacting policies that will deliver affordable, universal healthcare for all Californians.
“Achieving truly universal healthcare requires the deliberative policy work Speaker Rendon and chairs Dr. Joaquin Arambula and Dr. Jim Wood are leading this important effort. As supporters of universal healthcare, UFCW knows that achieving progressive reform on health care will also require building a truly progressive coalition and we are committed to this tough, vital work.”
