Health Reform law marks first anniversary

Even as Republicans in Congress try to scale back or repeal federal health reform and the courts consider striking it down, supporters of the law are marking its one-year anniversary today with a series of events to highlight the effect the measure is already having on Californians and their coverage. The law was signed on March 23, 2010 by President Obama, and its first provisions took effect six months later, on September 23. Since then California has pushed ahead with the law’s implementation.
