Amendments rush into print, notice is given, bills aspire to hearing status, in a holding pattern to see if they make the cut. Bills referred to Assembly Health Committee, 111. Bills making the cut, 26. Those include 2 CPA sponsored bills (AB 1976 and AB 2015) as reported last week. On the Senate side, mental health advocates learned three favorites fail.  Senate Health Committee hearing agenda excludes them with prejudice (presumably back in 2021):

SB 803 (Beall) – Peer Support Specialist Certification

SB 854 (Beall) – Coverage for Medication Assisted Treatment

SB 855 (Wiener) – Parity Coverage for Mental Health and Substance Use
