More Bills….

Still waiting for the big decisions by Governor Schwarzenegger on some of the key health bills, some of which are profiled by Mike Zapler at the San Jose Mercury News.

He signed SB 1168 by Senator George Runner (R-Lancaster), to allow older students to keep on their parents’ group coverage if they have to take an academic leave for medical reasons, which would normally mean they lose coverage.

Another bill Health Access California supported was SB 1351 by Senator Ellen Corbett (D-San Leandro), which would provide more oversight over ownership changes of district hospitals. See attached veto message.

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