It’s time for Laura’s Law

It is imperative that San Luis Obispo County supervisors pass Laura’s Law!

How many more employees have to be beaten and maimed by severely mentally ill violent patients at Atascadero State Hospital because SLO County does not have Laura’s Law?

Passing Laura’s Law could be a matter of life and death for employees at ASH. How can we afford not to pass Laura’s Law?

Employees at ASH are not allowed to physically defend themselves when they are attacked by a patient and therefore, the employee is extremely vulnerable to being hurt or possibly killed. Implementing Laura’s Law in County is long overdue.
