Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez announced today the floor session scheduled to consider health care reform would be pushed back from November 26th to the first full week of December. According the the Sacramento Bee’s CapitolAlert, the Assembly will meet on December 5th and 6th to consider special session legislation (which would include a water bill if those negotiations make progress).
In the meantime, negotiations continue on health care reform. As the need for a delay underscores, there are still substantial differences between Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Democratic Legislative Leadership on some major issues. However, neither side is calling it quits yet. Indeed, they’re continuing to meet with stakeholders for input on a host of issues.
