Monterey Herald

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said he is optimistic the U.S. Supreme Court won’t strike down the federal health reform law.

The law will likely survive, he said, because it is based on solid precedent the court’s conservative wing holds dear.

“They keep telling us that they don’t believe in judicial activism, so I’m going to take them at their word,” Jones said on Thursday before a town hall meeting in Marina with Assemblyman Bill Monning, D-Carmel.
