SACRAMENTO – Senator Anna Caballero today announced that SB 25 passed from the Senate, with bi-partisan support. SB 25 is a modest attempt to join forces with a federal tax credit designed to funnel an estimated $6 trillion from capital gains earnings into America’s poorest neighborhoods to create jobs and housing. SB 25 creates an incentive for green, sustainable development for critical housing statewide, and for economic development in the 879 Opportunity Zones, which includes California’s poorest census tracts. Included in the bill is the requirement that the workforce be trained and skilled, and subject to prevailing wage.

SACRAMENTO—Today, Senate Bill 697 by state Senator Anna M. Caballero, D-Salinas, received bipartisan support by the state Senate with a vote of 37-0. SB 697, eliminates the outmoded requirement that each PA work with a single physician, and ends the disparities between PAs and other medical providers in similar professional regulations.

Many physicians and PAs currently work in group practices or hospital settings where archaic state laws interfere with practice-level decisions about how patient-care teams can best meet the quality and access needs of patients.
