Sacramento, CA – Sen. Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) has joint-authored Senate Bill 301, which seeks to reinstate the successful Healthy Families Program.

“Many of my constituents were devastated by the elimination of the Healthy Families Program and their access to healthcare was threatened. I am honored to be a joint-author of SB 301, which will reinstate this program,” Sen.

Note: A similar bill, Assembly Bill 826, of which Sen. Strickland is a principal co-author, is also making its way through the legislature.
