Health care payment bill fails
Sacramento Business Journal

A bill that aimed to create a government-run health care payment system fell short of votes needed to pass the California Senate on Thursday. Senate Bill 810, proposed by Democrat Mark Leno of San Francisco, failed to pass on a vote of 19-15, with some members of both parties in opposition. The proposal aimed to create a premium structure by 2014 and would’ve prohibited the sale of any private health care insurance.
