California Assembly Speaker Faces Recall Effort; Opens Debate for Universal Healthcare
Democratic Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon is currently facing a recall effort launched by single-payer healthcare activists after Rendon blocked Senate Bill 562 that would have established a single-payer healthcare system in California. Rendon represents District 63 in the California State Assembly.
On August 24, Rendon announced plans for special committee hearings this fall to develop legislation for a path forward for universal health care legislation.
Recall organizers must collect 22,963 signatures for a recall election to be held.
