This Thursday, March 11, 2021, the 50 physician members of the California Medical Association (CMA) Council on Legislation (COL), chaired by Valencia Walker, M.D., will meet virtually to discuss and recommend positions on legislation that would impact physicians and the practice of medicine in California.
In the weeks leading up to COL, after the deadline for bill introductions, a list of relevant bills was circulated to COL members with recommended positions from CMA staff. Any questions, points of clarification, need for additional information or suggested changes in bill positions will be brought to COL, where a robust discussion will take place.
All of the recommended positions taken by COL will be presented to the CMA Board of Trustees for finalization at their next meeting on April 25. These then become CMA’s official positions throughout the current legislative cycle.
