SB 340 (Author: Jackson) Reproductive Rights Law Enforcement Act

Clarifies state law and regulations to help protect the confidentiality of health services accessed by insured dependants. PPAC supported SB 138, which passed and was signed into law.
SB 640 (Author: Lara) and AB 900 (Author: Alejo): Provider Rates
Would eliminate reductions in payments to Medi-Cal providers that were passed in June 2011. PPAC supported SB 640 and AB 900 as originally introduced - SB 640 and AB 900 were both held in committee.
ABx1 (Author: Perez) and SBx1 (Author: Hernandez): Medi-Cal Eligibility
Expands Medi‐Cal eligibility for low‐income, childless adults and simplifies Medi‐Cal eligibility rules as required under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). PPAC supported ABx1 and SBx1, which passed and were signed into law.
AB 599 (Author: Donnelly) and SB 312 (Knight): Parental Consent and Notification
AB 599 would have required parental consent for minors seeking medical care for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. SB 312 would have prevented teens under the age of 16 from leaving school to seek confidential medical services without parental notification. PPAC opposed both AB 599 and SB 312 and both failed passage.
SB 77 and AB 82: Anti-Abortion State Budget Amendments
Three amendments were proposed to two state budget health “trailer” bills (SB 77 and AB 82) that would have: 1) required parental consent before a minor can access abortion care; and 2) prohibited use of state funds if an abortion is intended for sex selection. PPAC opposed these budget amendments. All three amendments failed.
