I am encouraging every California resident that cares about their access to health care to consider joining the nearly 5,300 Californians that have already signed a petition urging Governor Schwarzenegger to stop the $1.5 billion in cuts to the state’s Medi-Cal program. It’s very easy to sign the petition: go to the website www.savemyemergencyroom.com, and enter your home zip code.
The goals of this campaign are to educate voters and stakeholders, build a coalition of support and mobilize Californians to stop the Medi-Cal cuts by signing a petition to the governor and e-mailing letters to legislators. The California Hospital Association (CHA) which is organizing this campaign delivered the previously collected signatures to the Governor’s office on July 30. In addition, 20,400 e-mails and 19,800 faxes have been sent to members of the legislator. Please help save access to vital services by signing up today.
