Legislative leadership…

From all the reports on the various political blogs, it seems that both Speaker Fabian Nunez and Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata will hold their leadership posts for the remainder of the legislative year.

In terms of afterwards, there’s lots of possibilities for the race to replace the Assembly Speaker, but there will be a first vote on March 11th.

Congratulations to Senator Darrell Steinberg on being the next choice of Senate President Pro Tem. Folks in health advocacy are very familiar with him for his authorship of the universal children’s coverage bill; his leading advocacy on mental health issues, and his leadership on budget and appropriations committees, of which health care issues always loom large.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
