(Sacramento, CA) – Senator Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) was recently appointed by Senate President pro Tempore, Kevin de León to serve on the State Senate’s Extraordinary Session on Health Care’s Public Health and Developmental Services Committee. As a former member of the CalOptima Board during his tenure as Orange County Supervisor, Senator Moorlach brings an exceptional understanding of health care issues affecting the 37th Senate District of California and Orange County at large.
“Health care is one of the largest industries in Orange County. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work side-by-side with my Senate colleagues and eager to find the most cost-effective options to the many critical health issues affecting our state,” said Senator Moorlach. “We received unexpected revenues and must resist the urge to raise taxes for programs that were not a high enough priority in the budget this year. My top priority will be to serve as a shield from unnecessary costs to the taxpayer and to be an advocate for all California families,” added Senator Moorlach.
Senate colleagues joining Senator Moorlach to serve on the State Senate’s Extraordinary Session on Health Care’s Public Health and Developmental Services Committee include: Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), Chair Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga), Vice-Chair, Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), Jim Beall (D-San Jose), Isadore Hall, III (D-South Bay), Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg), Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), Bill Monning (D-Carmel), Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber), Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), and Lois Wolk (D-Davis).
