Governor Edmund "Jerry" Brown vetoed the California Community Paramedic legislation late yesterday…
In his ‘veto message’ back to the stakeholders (attached), Governor Brown states:
- His support for CP programs
- His concerns with the restrictions in the Bill
- Authorizes the continuance of the pilots, and
- Urges the stakeholders to find a way to make CP permanent in California, without the restrictions contained in AB 3115
Tip of the hat to Lou Meyer, the loaned executive from the California Healthcare Foundation to the California Emergency Medical Services Authority, for making us aware of this breaking news.
The CHCF is a major supporter of Community Paramedic program development in California.
Please support Lou, Dr. Howard Backer and the State EMS Authority, and the numerous other stakeholders in supporting the further development of CP programs for California!
