(Sacramento) - As her very first act in public office, Assemblymember Eloise Reyes (D-San Bernardino) today introduced legislation to aid survivors of the San Bernardino terrorist attack by removing roadblocks that keep workers who suffer job-related injuries from receiving treatment for PTSD and other disorders.

“Survivors of the San Bernardino attacks deserve better than being caught in the web of workers comp bureaucracy,” said Assemblymember Reyes. “Medical care should first and foremost be about meeting a patient’s needs – and that’s what Assembly Bill 44 seeks to accomplish.”
