Dear Ann Ream:
Subject: SJR-20 Resolution 57 Hijacked (http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/postquery?bill_number=sjr_20&sess=PREV&house=B&author=alquist).
I think this is a case of well-intentioned legislation introduced by a separate senior group to the senior senate and on to the state legislature that was hijacked by the insurance and retirement homes lobby.
Please review our initial legislation and you have Resolution 57. There were zero “no” votes by any representative during the entire process. It doesn’t pass the smell test by any measure.
Please review our response to Senator Alquist and our piece that appeared in the Mercury News: https://jameshall.wordpress.com/2008/12/09/.
We have tried to develop interest from the major players including Anna Eshoo for many years. We would like to know who the Federal representative who is sponsoring the bill.
