⭒ Opposed by CANHR

This bill is Opposed by CANHR.

A repeat of AB 499 (Rubio) from 2022, vetoed by the Governor, this bill is again sponsored by “A Place for Mom,” a national, multi-million dollar referral agency. This bill seeks to amend California law governing referral agencies for Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) to provide accountability, but instead weakens current standards of responsibility and creates unnecessary communication and compliance barriers. California should strictly regulate financially motivated referral agencies; however, SB 875 fails to provide sufficient legal or consumer protections, and leaves consumers vulnerable to coercive and misleading business practices.
