Gov. Gavin Newsom pushes individual mandate for health insurance
San Francisco Chronicle

Hoping to persuade lawmakers to support a state individual mandate for health coverage, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday that California needs to stabilize a health insurance market that has suffered a “kneecapping” by the Trump administration.

“Without the mandate, everybody’s premiums go up,” Newsom said. The Affordable Care Act “has been vandalized,” he added. “We’re here to get it back on firmer footing.”
