California governor’s plan for healthcare in trouble
New York Times, January 28, 2008
A Senate health committee is expected to vote against California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's widely promoted bill on universal healthcare. A "no" vote would effectively kill the bill, which would also need voter approval to become law. The bill, which would offer coverage to millions of uninsured Californians, passed the State Assembly but began to stall in the Senate after the state's legislative analyst raised questions about its financing and two prominent Democrats announced they would vote against it.
