Date:9/10/2007

Statement of Sal Rosselli, President, SEIU-UHW and SEIU California State

They have told our elected officials loudly and clearly that we can't afford to wait any longer and that we need reform now -- and the leaders of the Assembly and Senate have listened.

Today, with Speaker Nunez' and President Pro Tem Perata's leadership, we have the opportunity to make history. We call upon our legislators to pass and the Governor to sign AB 8, a bill that would make dramatic breakthroughs in expanding access to health coverage and in making that coverage more affordable.

AB 8 would expand healthcare access to at least 70% of uninsured Californians -- more than 3 million people -- making it the most dramatic state healthcare reform in a generation and putting national healthcare ref
