Pending Legislation

The Medical Board of California (Board) takes positions on bills that are introduced in the Legislature impacting the Board and its jurisdiction. 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 members of the public that attend or call in to the Board’s quarterly meetings. The Board encourages the public to participate in Board Meetings and provide comments on bills. Another way to provide input on bills going through the Legislature, is to contact the author’s office or provide comments at policy committee hearings in the Legislature. Visit the California Legislative Information website for hearing information.

Below is a list of bills that will be going to the Board’s next quarterly Board Meeting (see Meetings page). The Board has provided links to the bill, author, and position, which also includes the Board's analysis. This list will be updated before and after each quarterly Board Meeting. After the Board Meeting, the list will be updated with the position the Board took on each bill.
