AM Alert: Senate committee considers ‘Medicare for all’
Sacramento Bee

Would “Medicare for all” in California cut medical costs and insurance premiums and also improve access to health care? The Senate Appropriations Committee is taking up a bill today that would set up a state agency to run a single-payer health care system. Senate Bill 810, by Democratic Sen. Mark Leno of San Francisco, is running into opposition from the California Chamber of Commerce, as Jon Ortiz reports in today’s Bee. The hearing is set to begin at noon in the Capitol’s Room 4203.
