CAHU Health Care Reform Update
8/9/17 - Nationally, over the past two weeks, the U.S. Senate majority party attempted yet again to repeal and replace the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA). The efforts were, again, unsuccessful. In California, on July 21, 2017, the California State Legislature recessed for their annual four-week summer break. Once legislators return on August 21, 2017, they will have only 19 working days left in the first year of the two-year legislative session. The last day of this session year is September 15, 2017 at midnight. Over that 19-day period, each house of the Legislature will consider hundreds of bills, and then send them on to Governor Jerry Brown for action.
