OPINION: Summer travel is back in full force. But would you get on an airplane if you knew the pilot’s only training was practicing in a simulator for a week or so and then completing a few test flights with an instructor? That is essentially what AB 2236 would require with regard to an optometrist doing eye surgery in California if the bill became law.
