Health policy rate authority sparks Assembly fight
The Mercury News

Democrats in the California Assembly on Thursday narrowly approved giving state regulators the power to reject rate hikes proposed by health insurers, voting after Republican lawmakers walked out of the chamber in protest. The Assembly voted 42-1 to approve the measure, with one Democrat voting no and others speaking against it. The bill, which needed 41 votes for approval, now goes to the Senate.
