Bill Aims to Regulate Health Care Prices

A Democratic Assemblymember has introduced a bill to rein in skyrocketing health care costs. Democrat Ash Khalra’s measure would create an independent commission to set reasonable health care prices, building on models like Medicare and systems in other countries that set health care rates. The bill comes as California’s Attorney General seeks to intervene in a Texas lawsuit in order to defend against a legal challenge to Obamacare.
