Government-Run Health Care Proposal Update

CalChamber Policy Advocate Karen Sarkissian provides the latest information on the government-run health care proposal at the CalChamber Capitol Summit on May 31, 2017.

SB 562 (Lara; D-Bell Gardens/Atkins; D-San Diego) has been identified as a job killer because it creates a new single-payer government-run multibillion-dollar health care system financed by an unspecified and undeveloped “revenue plan” which will penalize responsible employers and individuals and result in significant new taxes on all Californians and California businesses.
