Editorial Praises California’s Progress on Health Reform
If Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) signs legislation recently passed by state lawmakers, California could become the first state to establish a health insurance exchange under the federal health reform law, a San Jose Mercury News editorial states. It continues, "Health care reform could be the Legislature's most momentous accomplishment in this mostly abysmal session," adding that creating an insurance exchange "sends the clearest possible signal to Washington that the state is serious about working together to build a better safety net for its eight million uninsured residents."
