Assembly bill would help cover California's uninsured
The Sacramento Bee, January 2, 2008
The California assembly has approved legislation, backed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, which will provide medical coverage to about 70 percent of Californians who are permanently uninsured. The state legislature is to reconvene, and voters would be asked to approve taxes that would help pay for the $14.5 billion annual tab.
