story Health Care for All: Universal Coverage Proposals A rash of bills, proposals and proclamations are coming from statehouses declaring the need to provide universal health care cov- erage. Already this year, governors in Califomia and Pennsylvania said they'll push universal coverage laws. They're following on the heels of Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont, which already have such laws on the books. "There's a lot of excitement and states are interested in moving forward," says Neva Kaye, senior program director at the National Academy for State Health Policy. "If s impor- tant to bear in mind that states have been working on health reform for decades already." In Califomia, for instance, voters in 2004 over- turned a universal coverage law and last year Cov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar biU. But in January of this year, he proposed a sweeping coverage plan. Below is list of universal coverage bills that were introduced as of mid-February.—MATTHEW WEINSTOCK California Connecticut Hawaii

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
