Insurance, health care industry focus on commissioner race
San Jose Business Journal

One of the most important races this year isn’t for the governorship. It’s for state insurance commissioner. The winner will play a major role in how health reform is implemented in the state and what it will cost businesses. “That is the race to watch,” said James Dover, president and CEO of O’Connor Hospital. With the passage of the largest health reform bill in history, “that office is going to be integral to how that plays out in the state.”
