Capitol Alert

Nurses take to downtown streets in protest

Before marching on the state Capitol, Khadija Kabbe, left front, and Jennifer Holm, right front, rally with hundreds of members of the California Nurses Association in the K Street lobby of the California Hospital Association in downtown Sacramento. Among the bills backed by the nurses’ union this year are SB 483 by state Senator Jim Beall (D-San Jose), a measure to prevent patients from being left on hospital gurneys in “observation status” for lengthy periods, and AB 305, by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzales (D-San Diego) addressing gender bias in workers’ compensation laws.
