Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry’s Bill to Expand Access to Telehealth Care Signed by Governor Gavin Newsom

SACRAMENTO, CA – In his last day to act on legislation from the 2019 Session, Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 744 by Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters). AB 744 is landmark legislation that requires true telehealth parity in coverage and reimbursement in California. This means that health plans must provide reimbursement to healthcare providers for performing covered services, regardless of whether the care is provided in-person or through telehealth.

“California, the technology leader in our nation and the world, should also lead on access to health services.  Telehealth overcomes barriers to healthcare access by using technology to connect patients to their doctors, no matter where they live, what the demands of their jobs are, or what mobility challenges they may have,” said Aguiar-Curry. “By taking advantage of technological innovations in the healthcare industry, we can use our doctors’ time and expertise more efficiently while expanding access to all types of care for Californians.”

Governor Signs Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry’s Legislation to Preserve Small Family Farms, Agricultural Open Space

SACRAMENTO, CA – Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 872 by Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters) into law late last night. AB 872 addresses an inequity in California’s complicated property tax reassessment laws to help save small family farms.

AB 872 expands the existing change-in-ownership exclusion in property tax law, which allows property to be passed down from a parent to a child without being reassessed to a higher property tax value. This new protection will ensure that if a small, family-owned farm was incorporated prior to Prop 58, it will receive the same family heritage protections that proposition intended.

California Bill Would Level the Playing Field for Telehealth

A bill sitting on California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk would expand telehealth access to all state residents by requiring health plans to reimburse providers for appointments that would have the same impact whether in person or via video conferencing, for example.

Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry, Yolo County Win State Funding for County Road 40 Low Water Bridge Safety Project

(Woodland, CA) - Yolo County congratulates Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry’s (D-Winters) relentless efforts in securing $2.2M in state funding to replace County Road (CR) 40 Low Water Bridge.  The funding was included Senate Bill 109, which was signed by Governor Newson last week, to provide funding for the project through CalFire local assistance grants.

The existing CR 40 Low Water Bridge is a critical fire access road into the rural reaches of Yolo, Lake and Napa counties. The bridge has deteriorated significantly since being built over 100 years ago and is unable to support the weight of fire-fighting apparatuses or other vehicles, hampering CalFire’s efforts to gain access to this fire-prone region.
