Fresno Bee

Gov. Jerry Brown is calling a special legislative session to implement parts of the federal health care overhaul in California.

Brown issued a proclamation Thursday calling on lawmakers to convene Monday.

The governor says California needs to tweak some state laws to conform to new federal rules on health coverage. The state will need to make it easier for people to enroll in Medi-Cal, the state’s version of Medicaid.
