Health care bill passes to Senate floor
Sacramento Business Journal

A bill that would create a massive government-run health care system in California passed the Senate appropriations committee Thursday after a partisan vote of 6-2 and is now on the Senate floor. Committee Democrats approved it while Republicans voted against it. Senate Bill 810 proposes a new commission that would set premium rates that would be paid by all employers, and would examine benefits, co-payments and deductibles to balance the program’s budget.
