SACRAMENTO –Assemblymember Adam C. Gray (D-Merced) announced the introduction of AB 174 in cooperation with Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres), which provides financial stability and room to expand enrollment in UC Merced’s medical school partnership with UC Davis – the San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education (PRIME). Additionally, the bill would appropriate the necessary resources to fund a two-year planning effort to establish a medical school at UC Merced.
“Despite increased access to health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, emergency rooms in the Valley are increasingly congested,” said Assemblymember Gray. “There are simply not enough doctor’s offices here to meet the needs of the region.”

MERCED COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- A state lawmaker from the North Valley says too many small businesses are being sued for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act, and now he wants to change that.
Several Merced County businesses have recently been hit with ADA lawsuits. Atwater resident Aurora Cervantes has filed more than a dozen of them. Some store owners have now posted warning fliers with her photo in their windows. They claim she's searching for any minor issues just to make money.
