Amendment of SB 680

James MacMillan is planning a meeting with CA State Senator Cathleen Galgiani next month in Sacramento.  She has agreed to sponsor the amendments to SB 680.  We also have contacted Elizabeth (Betsy) Imholz, who is head of the west coast health team for the Consumers Union.  Betsy was part of the group that sponsored the original bill in 2001.   She indicated that the bill mandated OSHPD to report on all surgical and obstetrical procedures and that she was surprised that this hadn’t happened.  CU will help with an update to make more reports available to the public.  CASTS and CAACC will be soliciting ideas from members about the reporting process.
