The California Labor Federation as well as Labor United for Universal Healthcare have both asked for your support on this important piece of Legislation.

Right now, Californians who follow the rules of their health plan and visit an in-network clinic or health care facility can get hit with an out-of-network charge from a provider at that facility, such as an anesthesiologist or radiologist, that they likely had no ability to choose and may not have even met. This practice is unjust and can mean financial calamity for many families—but there is a solution. As early as this week, the State Senate will be voting on AB 72, to prevent these unexpected medical bills.

Nominations for the 68th annual Emmy Awards were announced on July 14. The Motion Picture Editors Guild congratulates all of the nominees in the post-production categories. The awards for those categories will be announced at the Creative Arts Awards and Ball, which takes place on two consecutive nights — September 10 and 11 — at the Microsoft Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, and will air on ABC-TV on Saturday, September 17 — the night before the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Sometimes music editors, more so than composers, find themselves working consistently on similar kinds of movies at different times during their careers. Rarely, however, does a music editor work on projects of such vastly different genres within a short time as Brian Bulman (pictured) found himself doing recently.

Give Patients Protection from Surprise Medical Bills
AB72, sponsored by California Assemblyman Rob Bonta, an Oakland Democrat, would protect patients from surprise medical bills in non-emergency situations, and establish a streamlined process for doctors to sort out reimbursement issues with insurers.
