California Doctors Group Opposes Senate Bill
The California Medical Assn. represents more than 35,000 physicians, making it the second-largest state medical group in the country after Texas.
Its executive committee met last week to discuss the Senate legislation proposed last month by Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), also known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Association leaders plan to announce their opposition later this week before a vote is taken in the Senate, spokesman Andrew LaMar told The Times.
They join a handful of other state medical associations that have opposed the bill in recent weeks, including those in Florida, Georgia and Texas.
