The Medical Board of California (Board) takes positions on bills that are introduced in the Legislature impacting the Board and its jurisdiction. During quarterly meetings, the Board Members are presented with analyses and staff recommendations, and then decide what position to take after discussion between the Members and comments from the public. The Board encourages the public to participate in Board Meetings and comment on bills. Another way to provide input on bills going through the Legislature is to contact the author’s office or provide comments at legislative committee hearings. Visit the California Legislative Information website for hearing information.
Below is a list of bills in the current legislative session that the Board has considered and adopted a position. The Board has provided links to the bill, author, and the Board’s position letter. This list will be updated as the Board adopts new or revised positions on legislation.
For additional information contact Aaron Bone, Chief of Legislation, at Aaron.Bone@mbc.ca.gov or (916) 274-6251.
