Schwarzenegger approves new health exchanges, but not without a fight
California Watch

When Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two laws establishing a health reform exchange Friday, it was a historic moment. It was also, more subtly, a defiant moment, as the governor drafted into law concepts that some health insurers and the California Chamber of Commerce bitterly opposed. On Tuesday, the Chamber of Commerce ran a full-page ad [PDF] in the Los Angeles Times, urging Schwarzenegger not to sign the law. “The devil’s in the details,” the ad said. “We respectfully ask you to veto AB 1602 and SB 900.”
