SB 426 Community-based home visitation pilot program

Call the Senate Human Services Committee members in their LOCAL offices!

SAMPLE SCRIPT: I am calling to ask Senator _____ of the Senate Human Services Committee vote NO on SB 426 the Community-based home visitation pilot program when it is presented to the Human Services Committee on April 25.

Would you like me to go into more detail as to why I would like the Senator to vote No?

SB 426 creates a pilot program for the home visiting program in California using volunteers as opposed to professionals. This is quite concerning. In addition the language of the law that originally stated that home visit programs were voluntary was struck out.

If you are told they only take calls from constituents please inform the staff that you are calling because this Senator sits on the committee

Only have to call one number for each legislator, just including all local office numbers

Call the Senate Health Committee Members at their Local Offices

SAMPLE SCRIPT: I am calling to ask Senator _____ of the Senate Health Committee to vote NO on SB 382 the Pest Control:mosquito abatement bill when it is presented to the Health Committee on April 26.

Would you like me to go into more detail as to why I would like the Senator to vote No?

SB 382 grants CalSurv unlimited authority to "(5) Perform other duties as necessary to protect the public and agricultural health of the state." This is vague and open ended.
