Health care: State uncertain as top court steps in
San Francisco Chronicle

When President Obama’s health care overhaul became law two years ago, California lawmakers jumped into action. Within months, they adopted several state laws that implement or build on the federal measure, including one to create a state health insurance exchange and another to allow young adults up to age 26 to remain covered by their parents’ health insurance policies. Lawmakers passed more bills related to the overhaul last year and continue to debate sweeping proposals now.
