In each issue of our CLSA Bulletin, we will highlight a new member of California’s seven-member “freshman class” in the 116th Congress.

On behalf of our membership and California’s statewide life sciences community – a sector which employs over 311,000 Californians – California Life Sciences Association (CLSA) welcomes Congresswoman Katie Hill (D-Simi Valley). We look forward to working with Congresswoman Hill and her team to advance policies that improve patient health and bring positive change for California patients and their families.
