Lawmaker Wants To Block Health Reform Law in Calif.
Assembly member Dan Logue (R-Linda) has pledged to organize an initiative to block California from implementing the federal health reform law. Logue said the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the federal government cannot revoke state's existing Medicaid funding for opting not to take part in an expansion of the program leaves room for the state to avoid implementing the law. He said he will conduct legal research into the specifics of developing a ballot initiative opposing implementation of the law and discuss the prospect with potential financial backers.
