California Special Session Planned for December
Governor Jerry Brown has told legislative leaders he intends to call a special session to deal with issues related to the federal healthcare law signed by President Obama in 2010.
The special session, planned for December, will give the governor and lawmakers an opportunity to keep working on healthcare proposals that have failed in the current session, which ends August 31, 2012.
Bills passed in a special session can take effect within 90 days of passage rather than at the beginning of the following calendar year.
