Please join us for our next Policy Café with our guest
Sen. Holly Mitchell (CA-26)
As major provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are being implemented and operationalized across the country, states continue to struggle with ensuring that low-income, minority, and underserved communities are able to access high quality health care. What pieces of the health care puzzle are the responsibility of the State, and how have they evolved over time? How do they compare to local and federal responsibilities? Do the ACA’s coverage gains potentially make some state programs obsolete? What is the State’s role, and what steps will California need to take in the future to ensure that all consumers are able to access high quality, affordable health care?
Mitchell serves on the Senate Rules Committee, the managing body of the State Senate, as well as the Budget, Insurance and Public Safety Committees. She chairs California's Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) and also belongs to the Women's Legislative Caucus. Mitchell previously represented the 54th District in the Assembly, where she chaired the Assembly's Budget Sub-committee #1 on Health & Human Services and the Select Committee on Foster Youth, and was a member of the Committees on Health, Insurance and Public Safety.
As the chief executive officer of Crystal Stairs for seven years prior to taking office she championed statewide family-focused policy making, while assuring access to quality affordable child care for 25,000 children and meeting a monthly payroll for hundreds of employees.
