WASHINGTON D.C. - The California Nurses Association was back at the Capitol on Tuesday to push for the passage of a single-payer healthcare plan in California.
Nurses rallied on Monday prior to the first committee hearing on universal health care in the Assembly.
They maintain that the informational hearings are pointless, as no legislation will be heard during the meetings.
The controversial single-payer healthcare bill was shelved earlier this year by the Assembly speaker for being "woefully incomplete."
Nurses are urging lawmakers to pass the bill as is.
