Congressman Mike Thompson Letter to ICE

March 2017 Report from Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry

Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry co-hosted and attended town hall forum with Senator Mike McGuire in Middletown about rebuilding after the fires.
Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry attended and co-sponsored Affordable Care Act town hall forum with Congressman Mike Thompson, Senators Dodd and McGuire and Assemblymembers Wood and Levine.
Assembly Aguiar-Curry continues to work with Senator McGuire and Lake County on the Anderson Springs Sewer Project.
Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry has been in close contact with Sheriff Martin and Lake County about the recent floods.
Staff from the Assemblymember’s office will be attending the Lake County Senior Summit.

People living in pharmacy-deprived areas, both rural and urban, face many barriers to obtaining comprehensive medical care. These patients desire more convenient access to their health care services, and remote pharmacy dispensing is a proven model to provide improved care that is both safe and effective.
Under existing law, prescription drugs can only be dispensed by a licensed pharmacy and pharmacist. There is no current authorization for licenses to be issued to remote dispensing pharmacies, and no existing use of telepharmacy communication services in California.
AB 401 creates a state license for remote dispensing pharmacies. The Board of Pharmacy will issue these licenses and determine the pharmacy-deprived locations eligible for a remote dispensing pharmacy.

AB 707 – Blue Ribbon Committee for the Rehabilitation of Clear Lake
AB 707 would establish a Blue Ribbon Committee for the Rehabilitation of Clear Lake, housed within the Natural Resources Agency. By working towards improving the environmental quality of the lake, this bill will benefit Lake County as a first step in helping the local economy through promoting tourism and job creation.

AB 273 – “Unlocking Opportunities for Families” – Subsidized Child Care Eligibility Criteria
In order to be eligible for state subsidized child care, families are required to meet eligibility requirements for income and need. AB 273 would add ESL and HSE educational programs to the list of eligibility criteria for state subsidized child development services under the California Educational Code.
