AB 258 and 1322 VETOED by the Governor
According to CSNO Lobbyist Lydia Bourne, both CSNO sponsored bills AB 258 Pupil health: School-Based Pupil Support Services Program Act funded with marijuana money and AB 1322 School-based health programs were vetoed by Governor Newsom late last week. Needless to say, CSNO and the partners who joined to advocate for these issues are dismayed. Just because the Governor decided to veto the bills doesn't mean our efforts stop. There is a clear need for unification of the CDE to have a unit that addresses the physical and mental health needs of children in are state as well as provide direction on LEA Medi-Cal and MAA. The group will reorganize and reconsider next steps.

AAP Policy Statement on Off-Label
The American Academy of Pediatrics has a position statement on the use of off-label medication use with children. The purpose of off-label use is to benefit the individual patient. Practitioners use their professional judgment to determine these uses. As such, the term “off-label” does not imply an improper, illegal, contraindicated, or investigational use. Therapeutic decision-making must always rely on the best available evidence and the importance of the benefit for the individual patient.
