Garamendi Seeks Role in Health Care Reform
Lt. Gov.-elect John Garamendi (D) said he planned to discuss health care with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) when they met last Wednesday, the Stockton Record reports.
According to the Record, recent comments about health care reform by the governor "have encouraged many Democrats, including Garamendi," who would like to be a "significant player" in the development of policy related to health care and other issues.
Garamendi said he could build on his experience as insurance commissioner to help the governor enact health care reform (Siders, Stockton Record, 11/26).
