SACRAMENTO — Assembly Bill 651, authored by Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance), passed the Assembly Health Committee on March 28 on a bipartisan vote of 11-1.

This bill strengthens the state attorney general’s oversight authority to preserve and promote culturally sensitive and language-appropriate health care for the state’s increasingly diverse seniors.

Under this bill, the attorney general is given additional time to approve or reject a nonprofit health care facility’s sale to a for-profit buyer from 60 to 90 days. It additionally requires public notice of a hearing to be provided not only in English but also in the languages spoken by the health care recipient community, and requires the attorney general to consider whether the transaction will have an adverse impact on the significant cultural interests of the affected community.
