Veto Bill Giving Lawmakers Added Health Benefits
A Sacramento Bee editorial urges Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to veto legislation (SB 1601) that adds vision care to the health benefits offered to retired lawmakers. The editorial also calls on Schwarzenegger to veto a bill (SB 981) aimed at addressing balance billing because the "legislation is clumsily written and leapfrogs over a stage regulation, scheduled to take effect on Oct. 15, that would address the problem."
