CA lawmakers OK bills to get $761M for health care
San Diego Union-Tribune

The Legislature narrowly passed two bills Monday that will enable the state to obtain $761 million in federal subsidies to help thousands of uninsured Californians obtain health insurance, but the program will reach only a fraction of those who have been denied coverage.

The state Senate passed the bills, which now go to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has said he will sign them.
