SB 589 (Bates): Deceptive Marketing Ban

Governor Newsom vetoed SB 589 authored by Senator Pat Bates that would have prohibited an addiction treatment facility from providing false advertising or marketing services. I was proud to carry the legislation on the Assembly floor.

I am disappointed that the Governor vetoed a bill to help protect vulnerable patients and their families seeking treatment. I will continue to work to address issues surrounding rehab facilities and sober living homes.
