September of 1967. Hundreds gathered aboard the former Royal Mail Ship to witness this rare visit by Queen Elizabeth in Long Beach harbor Tuesday at sundown. Two queens of the seas had a royal gather-

Iranian New Year celebrated in Los Angeles County

City of Arcadia forms a Task Force Local celebration held at the Scottish Rite Cathedral Norooz will occur at to look into the matter 04:03:13 AM Pacific Time By Terry Miller

It was reported last week that a motel in Arcadia is allegedly being used as a ‘baby factory’ housing expectant mothers from overseas, in particular China, to have their children born in the United States and thus garner immediate US citizenship for that child. Reports from several outlets say that the Santa Anita Inn is being used as a “ maternity hotel.” While the practice is not illegal, it is raising a lot of eyebrows across the San Gabriel Valley. The Arcadia Weekly has learned that other locations including Extended

Stay may also be involved in similar schemes in Arcadia, Monrovia and surrounding cities. However, Arcadia Asst. City Manager Jason Kruckeberg says that the city is wellaware of what is going on not only at the Santa Anita Inn. “A number of the rooms over there are being rented by pregnant individuals. They city has been aware of that for quite some time,” Kruckeberg told Beacon Media.” We have started a Task Force with some outside agencies to address this issue…” he said Wednesday.

on Wednesday, March 20th, at the turn of the spring or vernal equinox. The wonderful annual Pasadena tradition, Iranian New Year celebration was held Thursday, March 14 at Scottish Rite Cathedral in Pasadena. With a reception-and lots of presentations, some 400 plus guests sampled traditional Persian foods and teas and learned a great deal about the calendar and its importance in spring. Dr. Nazee’s event is one of the best organized Norooz celebrations in Los Angeles County.

Real Estate firm apologizes for breach of Theft of UPS packages contract and defamation – Court awards from Monterey Park $385,000 to Singpoli Pacifica home caught on video Singpoli Pacifica, LLC and its CEO Kin Hui announces the receipt of a letter of apology and $385,000 from Los Angeles-based real estate brokerage firm Charles Dunn Company as part of a lawsuit settlement. On December 10, 2010, Plaintiffs Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacifica, LLC filed an action against defendants Charles Dunn Company, Inc. and Robert Harrison in Los Angeles Superior Court, (Case No. BC 451003) for breach of a written contract and defamation. The lawsuit was precipitated by alleged false statements made by Defendant Robert Harrison against Plaintiffs Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacifica, LLC. Robert Harrison had appeared at various Pasadena city hearings claiming that Plaintiff Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacifica, LLC owed on a judgment and refused to pay. (The attached letter from Defen-

dant Charles Dunn Company, Inc. clearly states that Plaintiffs Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacifica, LLC never owed on a judgment nor owed Defendant Charles Dunn any monies.) During the course of the action, the Defendants brought multiple motions to dismiss the case. The Court denied each of these motions. The trial was set to commence on Monday, January 28, 2013, but the Defendants Charles Dunn Company, Inc. and Robert Harrison agreed to settle all claims against them just prior to that date. Settlement details include: (1) Provide a letter to Plaintiffs Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacifica, LLC indicating that the statements made by its -real estate salesperson Robert Harrison were false and in fact that Kin Hui and Singpoli Pacific, LLC never owed any money to Charles Dunn Company; (2) Compensate Kin Hui $385,000; and (3) Release any judgment claim

against Singpoli Pacifica Development, Ltd. The settlement ends Kin Hui’s two year battle to clear both his name and Singpoli’s name. Kin Hui’s thoughts about the settlement are best summed-up by the statement made by business magnate Steve Wynn as reported by the Associated Press, “Thank God for the justice system that finally sent a message: If you think you’re taking a cheap shot, it may be a lot more expensive than you had imagined. Therefore, think before you post; think before you speak; hesitate before you start to destroy someone’s character. There may be a day of reckoning.” Kin Hui also stated that net proceeds from the settlement will be distributed to various charities through the Kin Hui Charity Foundation, which primarily helps orphanages meet the daily and `healthcare needs of its children.

Monterey Park Police are seeking three suspects in an alleged theft that was captured by a resident’s video surveillance camera. The theft occurred on March 8, 2013, between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. The suspects parked in front of the victim’s residence in the 1800 block of Lupine Drive. It appears that there was a driver waiting in the vehicle while two females retrieved packages from the front porch of the victim’s residence. One suspect is a Black female, mid 20s, thin built, long braided hair, wearing dark clothing with a

bandana in her hair. The second suspect appears to be a Hispanic female, mid 20s, heavy build, with long dark hair, wearing blue clothing. The suspect vehicle was a white four door sedan. The suspects took a total of five packages, valued at $2,000. Residents are encouraged to schedule deliveries of packages at a time or place where someone will be available to receive packages immediately. Anyone with information related to this crime may contact Detective Guevara at 626-307-1428.

community pharmacies from antitrust laws that currently prohibit them from banding together to negotiate better contract terms from the large companies that dominate the prescription drug benefit marketplace. This bill would also give independent pharmacies more leverage when they are negotiating with insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers. “This bill is an allaround win for the American people – the ability to negotiate for drug reimbursements will keep hometown pharmacies competitive against their larger counterparts by driving down costs,” said Chu. “This is crucial to making sure corporate interests don’t achieve market dominance over prescription drugs, and will

safeguard countless jobs in our communities that would otherwise be lost due to competitive disadvantage.” “Independent pharmacies are at a competitive disadvantage and need a level playing field in order to provide their customers with vital prescriptions at a reasonable cost,” added Marino. “This legislation does not cost the federal government or the taxpayers a single cent, and would in fact lower the cost of medications and prescriptions for independent pharmacies while allowing consumers continued access to their preferred, hometown pharmacies. I am eager to work with my colleague Congresswoman Chu to gain support for this bill on both sides of the aisle.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Easter Bunny to visit Burbank March 30 Dust off your baskets, March 30 with the first egg recognizes critical public safety benefits the Spring Egg-Stravagan- hunt for parents and chilza is returning to McCam- dren under 3 at 9:30am. digital signs provide to region bridge Park. The Easter Bunny will Sign Up LA released wednesday a letter from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department highlighting the important public safety role digital signs play in law enforcement efforts to keep the Los Angeles community safe and prepared. In the letter, Sheriff Baca describes digital signs as a unique resource and offers his appreciation for having access to digital signs for the Department’s crime prevention and emergency response efforts. Sign Up LA, a coalition of business groups, nonprofit organizations, community groups and sign companies, supports the reasonable use and location of digital signs in Los Angeles to ensure the Los Angeles community continues to receive the critical public safety benefits they provide. Digital signs play an important role in law enforcement and other public safety efforts in the 43 states and 450 localities around the country where these signs operate by enabling messages to quickly and efficiently reach large audiences with important and potentially life-saving

messages. Highlighting the crucial role of digital signs in public safety efforts, the Sheriff’s Department letter states: “Digital billboards provide a unique resource to law enforcement agencies and public safety organizations, and the benefit digital signs provide our community is truly invaluable. The ability to display real-time messages in a dynamic and effective manner cannot be underestimated, particularly in large metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles… The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is pleased to know that this resource is available to us in emergency situations, such as natural disasters, where the effective and quick dissemination of information to the public is absolutely crucial.” The Sheriff’s Department letter comes on the tail of letters released last month from the FBI and the U.S. Marshals, demonstrating widespread support for the public safety benefits of digital signs by law enforcement agencies. In Southern California,

all levels of the law enforcement community have turned to digital signs to enhance efforts to protect public safety. Recently, the FBI used digital signs in Los Angeles to seek information from the public to help track down a dangerous individual who had used an AK47 to rob banks in Southern California, Washington State and Idaho. And just last month, alerts ran on digital signs in Los Angeles to seek information from the public during the Los Angeles Police Department search for Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer who went on a violent and deadly killing spree throughout Southern California. Without progress on digital signage public policy, the city risks losing these valuable public safety benefits and creating a public safety digital signs gap. Sign Up LA will continue to be active in the public dialogue as the city of Los Angeles considers a legislative solution to address issues surrounding digital signage.

Boot camp suspects arrested for injuring children Detectives from the Special Victims Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrested two suspects from a local business in East Los Angeles for continuously hitting and beating 9 male and 2 female juveniles who ranged in age from 12 years old to 17 years old. The suspects, Edgar Alvarado and Ruben Romero, are instructors at this business which is known as “Recon 180,” which is geared towards instilling leadership and self-discipline for teenagers through a paramilitary structured setting. The alleged physical abuse occurred at the Recon 180 training facility in

the Angeles Crest Mountains known as Camp Coulter, and at their headquarters in the 1000 block of Goodrich Boulevard, East Los Angeles, between the years 2010 and 2012. Additionally, one of the girls alleged that she was inappropriately touched by suspect Edgar Alvarado. The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who reviewed the case and filed 3 felony counts of Willful Injury to a Child Causing Great Bodily Injury, 1 felony count of Corporal Injury to a Child, and 1 felony count of Sexual Battery on suspect Edgar Alvarado and 3 misdemeanor counts of

Battery on suspect Ruben Romero. Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying additional victims who might have been victimized by the staff at the “Recon 180” Boot Camp Facilities.

Atlantic Ocean from 1936 right up until 1967 when air travel was considered safer, more economical and, of course, much faster. The typical transatlantic voyage from Southampton to New York took 5 days. Queen Elizabeth is a luxury cruise ship sailing all over the world at any given time. With 2,092 passengers, she is the second largest ship to be constructed for Cunard. Launched in 2010 she is 16-stories high and 964ft long and replaces the original Queen Elizabeth, which was destroyed in a fire in Hong Kong Harbor. Cunard currently operates three liners since the retirement of QE2 in 2008

– Queens Elizabeth, Victoria and Mary. In recent weeks several cruise ship lines have had outbreaks of food poisoning and Tuesday, apparently, was Queen Elizabeth’s turn. 84 passengers were treated for norovirus

during a 36 day cruise to the South Pacific. Cunard line says only 4% of the more than 1900 passengers became ill. This most recent outbreak follows two others that occurred during the month of March.

MARCH 18, 2013 - MARCH 24, 2013 | 5

Spring into Azusa Canyon By Greg Aragon As spring arrives in Southern California, the weather becomes even more beautiful and the varied landscape beckons, inspiring one of my favorite pastimes – the weekend drive. With this in mind, I recently took my Jeep to one of my favorite local spots for a Sunday adventure. I drove up to Azusa Canyon, where I played in mountains, mud and streams. Located a dozen miles above the city of Azusa, in the San Gabriel Mountains, Azusa Canyon is a natural playground with everything a four-wheel drive vehicle or any outdoor-lover could want. The adventure into the canyon begins with a picturesque drive up Highway 39 (Azusa Avenue). This panoramic road cuts through rugged peaks and offers great vistas of two reservoirs (Morris and San Gabriel) as well as the ancient San Gabriel River

snaking below. There are scores of great spots to turn-in for viewing along the highway, but all stopped vehicles must display a $5 Adventure Pass, which can be purchased at ranger stations and at select stores before you enter the canyon. The winding, climbing road was perfect for testing my Jeep’s power and handling. I followed it until I reached East Fork Bridge, where I turned right and headed for Camp Williams Resort for lunch. Nestled in the wilderness along the East Fork of the San Gabriel River, Camp Williams features 30 campsites, as well as a number of full hook-up RV sites. There is even a charming Hobbit House that sleeps four. The camp offers showers, restrooms and drinking and cooking water for renters. Activities include mountain biking, hiking, fishing for trout and gold panning in the oncerich stream. The location also boasts Camp Williams Café and General Store, a charming, old-fashioned

establishment with food, fishing supplies and camping necessities. They also sell the Adventure Pass. While here, I sat outside and enjoyed a tasty club sandwich, fries and a coke, along with a spectacular view of the mountains and people fishing in a troutfilled stream below. After lunch I drove back over the East Fork Bridge, turned right and rolled into the San Gabriel Canyon Off-Road Area, the largest mud pit in Southern California. The cost is $8 to enter and all vehicles must be fourwheel drive and legally registered to enter. Driving minors must be accompanied by an adult and pass a driving safety test. Once inside the 160acre park, I carefully cruised around the sandy river bed, trying to act cool and not get my truck too dirty without letting other drivers know this was my first time actually driving off-road. As I meandered over rough terrain, I watched more experienced drivers tackle mud pits, sand dunes and large rock configurations.

Mike Gatto’s bill to address hit and run epidemic clears public safety committee Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s bill to address the epidemic of hit-and-run offenses in Southern California cleared its first legislative hurdle today, passing the Assembly Public Safety committee by a unanimous vote of 7-0. The legislation, AB 184, provides an additional tool to law enforcement officers investigating hit-and-run offenses by extending the statute of limitations for such offenses to three years from the date of the offense, or one year after a possible suspect is identified by law enforcement, whichever is later. Currently, motorists who flee the scene of an accident can simply “run down the clock” to avoid any liability whatsoever. If a motorist is not identified (which is often very difficult) within three years, the motorist cannot be prosecuted. The Legislature has passed similar changes to statutes of

limitations for crimes with hard-to-identify perpetrators, like clergy abuse. Los Angeles’s problems with hit-and-run accidents were evinced recently by a series of high-profile accidents in Gatto’s district. Just one month after Gatto introduced the legislation, Damien Kevitt was struck by a mini-van while riding his bicycle and dragged more than a quarter mile, down Interstate 5. The collision resulted in dozens of broken bones and the amputation of one of Kevitt’s legs. “Damien Kevitt is just one of thousands hit-andrun victims who suffer life-threatening injuries annually,” said Gatto. “Allowing the perpetrators to avoid prosecution just adds insult to these injuries. AB 184 will allow victims and law enforcement to obtain justice.” Eric Bruins, Planning & Policy Director for the

Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, noted that bicyclists and pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to hit-and-run collisions that result in death or serious bodily injury. “It’s hard for us to encourage people to bike and walk, when our streets are treated like the Wild West,” said Bruins. “The LA County Bicycle Coalition commends Assemblyman Gatto for bringing attention to this issue and giving hit-and-run victims hope that their perpetrators might be brought to justice once identified.” “This is a relatively easy and sensible fix to the law,” said Gatto. “Presuming my bill becomes law, my hope is that people who would otherwise flee the scene of an accident realize that they can be prosecuted, no matter how long it takes.” AB 184 now heads to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

A stream from the San Gabriel River also runs through the area, but because of an endangered fish, the Santa Ana Sucker, drivers cannot play in the

water. They can only cross it at 90-degree angles. For more information on visiting Azusa Canyon, call the San Gabriel River Ranger at (626) 335-1251.

The off-road area can be reached at (626) 910-1235. For info on visiting Camp Williams, call (626) 9101126 or visit www.campatwilliams.com.

Dorothy's Place

A wee bit of laughter

By Dorothy Denne St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. Since on March 17 everyone is either Irish or pretends to be, I'll resurrect some of me Irish jokes so ye can enjoy a wee bit of laughter. Murphy Murphy was staggering home with a pint of booze in his back pocket when he slipped and fell heavily. Struggling to his feet, he felt something wet running down the back of his leg. "Please, Lord," he implored,"let it be blood!!" Paddy Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking space. Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!" Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I

found one." Father Murphy Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal and says to the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?" The man said , "I do, Father." The priest said, "Then stand there against the wall." Then the priest asked the second man, "Do you want to go to heaven?" "Certainly, Father," was the man's reply. "Then stand over there against the wall," said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and said, "Do you want to go to heaven?" O'Toole said, "No I don't, Father." The priest said, "I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?" O'Toole said, "Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now." Gallagher Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend, Finney. "Did you see the paper?" asked Gallagher. "They say I died!!" "Yes, I saw it," replied Finney.

"Where are ye callin' from?" Lost at Sea Two Irishmen, Patrick and Michael, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Patrick stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of Patrick and Michael, a genie did come forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could deliver only one wish, not the standard three. Without giving it much thought, Patrick blurted out, "turn the entire ocean into Guiness beer." The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the fnest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of Guiness on the hull broke the stillness. Patrick smiled contentedly. Michael glared at him disgustedly. After a long, tension filled moment he spoke. "Nice going Patrick. Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."

Assemblymember Holden’s bill to fight human trafficking passes first committee test Human trafficking is the world's fastest growing criminal enterprise with victims as young as 13 being forced into prostitution* Assemblymember Chris Holden’s bill to aid state law enforcement in stopping the trade of young men and women for prostitution was unanimously approved today by the Assembly Public Safety Committee. AB 156 would allow law enforcement to get a court order for a wiretap when they suspect human trafficking across state and national borders. “When I learned that criminal gangs were moving thousands of young women and men – some as young as 13 – into California each year and turning them into prostitutes, I was appalled and angry,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “This bill would help law enforcement inter-

cept these guys who prey on our young people and it would turn California into a leader in preventing child trafficking. If it can save one life, then this bill is worth it.” More than 100,000 American children are exploited through prostitution each year. It is the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprise raking in some $32 billion worldwide. Many of these victims have been in foster care or in the child welfare system and are vulnerable to exploitation. Testifying today in support of AB 156 was Rosario Dowling with California Against Slavery. She read a statement from a young woman who had been lured into prostitution as a

teen but was rescued by a federal wiretap: “It is important to have the bill pass because it would save the lives of so many children if only we would use it the way it was meant to be used like it was used to save my life,” Stacy Lundgren. AB 156 has the support of more than 20 California law enforcement agencies and community organizations including California Police Chiefs, Peace Officers Research Association (PORAC) and Crime Victims United. Three other states have approved similar legislation including Texas, Maryland, and Illinois. *CA Attorney General’s Office

Momentum builds for Rep. Schiff’s bill to reduce helicopter traffic and noise over Los Angeles neighborhoods Momentum continues to build for legislation that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) introduced last month to regulate helicopter traffic and noise in Los Angeles County. Several affected cities and local organizations have joined in support of the bill. The Los Angeles Residential Helicopter Noise Relief Act (H.R. 456) would require the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) to provide Los Angeles County residents relief from the noise caused by low-flying helicopters above residential neighborhoods. Since its introduction, several local municipalities including the City of Los Angeles, the City of West Hollywood, the City of Beverly Hills and the City of Lomita have expressed their support for the bill. In a letter to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure endorsing the bill, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors stated that, “Such regulations would address the enormously disruptive noise caused by low-flying helicopters on non-emergency flights, such as tours and paparazzi photo shoots.” Last week, the City of West Hollywood voted unanimously to adopt a resolution in support of the bill, less than a week after Mayor Jeffrey Prang proposed a resolution supporting the helicopter noise bill. Mayor Prang praised the initiative at a recent Council meeting and was pleased that the “challenge we have with helicopters strafing our neighbor-

hoods and causing havoc” was one of the first conversations he had with Rep. Schiff when he began representing West Hollywood earlier this year due to redistricting. Schiff said that he was encouraged by the strong support from local organizations supporting the legislation: “Residents across the Los Angeles area – from Pasadena to the Coast, and the Valley to the Hollywood Hills – are affected by intrusive, disruptive and often non-emergency related helicopter traffic about their neighborhoods and homes. Angelinos deserve peace and quiet, and if the FAA won’t act to regulate disruptive and preventable helicopter traffic noise, Congress must pass this legislation to give residents the relief they deserve.” In a letter to Schiff, Beverly Hills Mayor William Brien expressed his support and agreed that, “By reducing, if not eliminating the noise of low-flying helicopters over Beverly Hills and

surrounding communities, your legislative measure will significantly improve the quality of life and safety for all our residents.” Additionally, the Van Nuys Airport Citizens Advisory Council also voted 13-0 to support the legislation. “This is putting pressure on the FAA,” said Wayne Williams, a member of the council. Rep. Schiff was joined in introducing this legislation with Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, as well as Reps. Henry Waxman, Brad Sherman and Janice Hahn. The Los Angeles Residential Helicopter Noise Relief Actwould require the FAA toestablish regulations on flight paths and minimum altitudes for helicopter operations in Los Angeles County. Schiff hopes that the legislation will prompt the FAA to act, and if passed, will require the agency to finally address numerous resident complaints that have been building over the years.

Kruckeburg said the city has been in contact with Los Angeles County Health dept. as this issue would fall under their jurisdiction; also the city has contacted Franchise Tax Board and the E.E.D for further investigation. Kruckeberg said that his understanding is that the pregnant women come to the United States on a tourist visa usually when several months pregnant. In many communities, including Arcadia, residential homes have been used as maternity homes, which is against the law without proper permits. “They typically will have a child here to get American

citizenship, so that when the child goes back to whatever county, they have the ability to come back here to go to school, have all the rights of citizenship.” Kruckeberg says the practice is not actually illegal, while admitting that the city did in fact shut down 4-5 residential facilities within the past year. This issue is zoning regulations as well as health and safety and if the hotel/ motel is not compliant, they will be held responsible. Kruckeberg said people from the city have been in contact with the Santa Anita Inn and found no evidence of a nursery when officials

visited, as was reported by KTLA. Estimated costs for the women run anywhere from $30 - $40,000 for a 3-4 month stay for these expectant mothers. Who is in charge of and receiving these funds remains unknown to the Task Force but Kruckeberg is confident that officials at the state, local and federal level will address these concerns. We contacted the corporate offices of county Health, Board of Supervisors and Extended Stay, and a few local hospitals , however as of press time, have not received any returned calls.

Senator Hernandez introduces legislation to bridge the provider gap Legislation will help address shortage of health care providers

Senator Dr. Ed Hernandez, O.D. (D – West Covina), Chair of the Senate Health Committee, highlighted Wednesday legislation he has introduced to deal with the serious shortage of primary care providers in California, a problem that will only grow worse when up to 7 million more Californians seek health coverage next year under the Affordable Care Act. Senator Hernandez used the press conference, held at Wellpoint Community Clinic in Sacramento, to emphasize the need for more providers, and how we can use our existing workforce of medically trained professionals more effectively to bridge the gap. “We are working hard at the state level to ensure every Californian has access to affordable, quality health coverage, but what good is a health insurance card if you can’t get into see a health care provider when you need one?” said Hernandez,

“We need to make better use of the trained healthcare workforce we already have if we are ever going to meet demand.” The shortage of physicians is exacerbated by their inequitable distribution throughout the state, with low-income and rural communities having little or no access to primary care physicians. Senator Hernandez, an optometrist himself, introduced the legislation to allow licensed optometrists, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists to expand their practices, as has been done in other states, to bridge the provider gap and alleviate the distribution problem. “I chose these 3 professions because they have rigorous training standards, are evenly distributed across the state, have a proven record of providing quality care, and are regulated by independent boards that will make certain patient safety is not compromised” continued Hernandez “These health

care providers are currently practicing well below their level of training. In the face of so many people seeking care, we cannot continue to underutilize our workforce.” The press conference was held in advance of a joint informational hearing of the Senate Committee on Health and the Senate Committee on Business, Professions, and Economic Development to discuss short-term and long-term solutions to the provider gap and overall health care accessibility. “Our M.D.’s do an incredible job providing care in this state, but there simply are not enough. As a legislator, and as a health care provider, I have to be concerned with ensuring people have access to adequate care when they need it.” added Hernandez, “This legislation makes it possible for these providers to work collaboratively with physicians in a team-based approached so that patients get the right level of care at the right time.”
