Governor Should Sign Health Care Bills, Editorial Argues
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) "should give special attention" to a bill (AB 1600), by Assembly member Jim Beall (D-San Jose), that would require California insurers to cover mental health issues to the same extent that they cover other medical problems, a Vallejo Times-Herald editorial states. It continues that Schwarzenegger also should sign legislation (SB 900 and AB 1602) to establish a health insurance exchange, as well as a bill (SB 890) to "help consumers navigate the complexities of shopping for an individual insurance policy."
