With healthcare ruling in, is an insurance rate-hike battle next?
Los Angeles Times

As the Supreme Court upheld President Obama’s healthcare law Thursday, a battle may be looming in California over insurance rate hikes this fall. The state is currently reviewing signatures to see if a proposed initiative will qualify for the November ballot.

Both critics and supporters of an initiative have been raising millions of dollars in their efforts. Proponents hope to give the state’s insurance commissioner the ability to regulate health insurance rates, much like it does for auto and property coverage.
