With the stroke of his pen, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed California’s health care reform bills into law Friday.

The legislation is three years in the making.

“It is a health crisis when you see emergency rooms all over the state of California closing down because of tens of millions of dollars of unpaid bills,” Schwarzenegger said. “It is a moral crisis when the greatest state in the greatest country in the world has 8 million people uninsured.”
