Tomorrow’s Senate Hearing has been Cancelled

Dear Health Advocates:


We have just been notified that the snowstorm has caused the WA Senate and House to cancel business for Monday. We will send a notice when we learn the rescheduled date and time for the Senate Health & Long-Term Care Committee hearing on “Pathway to Universal Health Care” – SB 5822.


SB 5822  was introduced by Sen. Emily Randall and is co-sponsored by many health champions. It would create a work group of a broad range of health care stakeholders to study and make recommendations to the legislature on a universal health care system that is sustainable and affordable for all WA residents. This would represent the biggest step taken so far to prepare to achieve health care for all Washingtonians.


What you can do now:


    • Send a comment of support to your legislators by clicking on “Comment on this bill” here:  Comment here. Email your message of support or call the Legislative If your organization supports universal health care, send a comment on its behalf. 
    • Contact your legislators in both the Senate and House to let them know you support SB 5822/HB 1877.  Hotline, 1-800-562-6000.
    • Attend the hearing ON THE DATE IT IS RESCHEDULED
