Sacramento Bee

Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed longtime adviser Marty Morgenstern to the board of California’s health exchange, as two former Schwarzenegger administration officials’ terms expire, Brown’s office said Thursday. Morgenstern and Genoveva Islas, a public health advocate from Tulare, replace Susan Kennedy and Kim Belshé. The five-member board is charged with implementing the federal health care overhaul in California. Morgenstern, 80, retired in 2013 as secretary of the state Labor and Workforce Development Agency but stayed on as an unpaid adviser to Brown.
