The Mercury News

Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed a bill that will diversify the expertise of the five-member board of directors of Covered California, the state’s health care exchange.

While previous state law limited the expertise of board members to only those with experience in certain health care fields, Senate Bill 972 by Sen. Norma Torres (D-Pomona) expands the criteria to allow individuals with expertise in marketing, information technology, management information systems and cultural competency in enrollment counseling.
