SB 65 California Momnibus Bill and Midwifery Workforce Training

SB 65 (Skinner), the California Momnibus bill is officially off to the Governor’s desk having passed the Assembly (77-0!) last Thursday with a concurrence vote in the Senate Friday!! This means we are only one step away from creating the Midwifery Workforce Training Act in California (among other awesome changes)! If SB 65 is signed into law, next year’s focus will be to get this midwifery training section funded by the legislature.

While our vote count was great, we do have opposition from the Department of Finance, in particular because the Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review committee portion of the bill was not included in the budget, so a Governor signature is not guaranteed. For more information, see the updated informational flyer here. If you want to support NOW, please visit cnma.org/advocacy for what you can do!
