SB 402 PASSES SENATE!
Baby Friendly Hospitals (De León – Pavley)

On May 29, SB 402 (De León-Pavley) was heard on the Senate Floor and passed 38-0 with bipartisan support!

This ground-breaking bill sponsored by CWA would require all California perinatal hospitals to become Baby Friendly by 2025, or adopt an alternate process that includes evidenced-based policies and practices and targeted outcomes.

Thank you to all of our supporters, and all of you who wrote letters, called, and met with our policy makers to ensure its passage. It will now head over to the Assembly where it will start in committees soon.

Be sure to read the current bill text (amended 5/28). You can also subscribe to the bill here to make sure you get all the latest updates.

Stay tuned in the next few weeks as the bill heads to the Assembly – we will be asking all of our supporters to send letters so we can help this important piece of legislation move through the system.

Thank you for your support!
