California legislation states intent to enact PPACA if struck down by USSC

Various California officials have been signaling over the past month or so that the Golden State would implement health reforms similar to those of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) if the U.S. Supreme Court rules the law unconstitutional this summer.

One influential state lawmaker, Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez, put that intent on record this week.  He amended his SB 1487 to state legislative intent “to enact into state law any provision of the Affordable Care Act that may be struck down by the United States Supreme Court and that is necessary to ensure all Californians receive the full promise of the act.”
