Support AB-1309: Honorable Governor Gavin Newsom

AB 1309 would require nursing homes to include the same level of detail to justify a resident eviction that is required of RCFEs.  Requiring this additional information will enable residents to better defend against inappropriate and unsafe evictions on appeal.  Nursing homes are already required to comprehensively document their basis for evicting residents; AB 1309 requires that the facilities share some of this information with the residents.
