Sacramento Bee

Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez unveiled a bill Tuesday that he says would ready California for expanded new health insurance options that federal law requires by 2014.

Assembly Bill 1602 would set up the California Health Benefit Exchange, which will serve as a marketplace for small businesses and individuals to buy insurance under terms that will now include federal tax breaks and subsidies, Pérez said at a news conference.
