CalHyPAC is the only political action committee that represents California dental hygienists. The PAC establishes relationships with California legislators who believe that dental hygienists are an important and essential part of the health care system. We support candidates for the California legislature who believe in our interests, concerns, and goals.
When CDHA introduces legislation, we need a supportive legislator who will sponsor the bill for us. For example, Senator Don Perata sponsored our bill for the establishment of the registered dental hygienist in alternative practice (RDHAP).
We encourage and welcome your input and recommendations for those candidates who will receive support from CalHyPAC. The PAC consists of six to ten CDHA members nominated by the CDHA president and confirmed by the CDHA Board of Trustees for a three year term. The committee meets once a year at the office of our legislative advocacy firm, Aaron Read and Associates. The PAC is sustained by contributions and income from fundraisers.
