HEALTHCARE IN CALIFORNIA. A new law in California goes further than federal health reform to make sure children with pre-existing health conditions receive medical insurance. The state law goes into effect January 1 and makes it illegal to deny coverage to children with pre-existing conditions, and limits the amount insurers can charge those children’s families.

ALSO, METHYL IODIDE. Farmworker and environmental health groups are suing after California approved the pesticide methyl iodide for use on strawberries and other crops. Methyl iodide is a chemical that causes cancer, late term miscarriages and contaminates water. The Department of Pesticide Regulation opted to use it despite numerous scientists’ concerns, in part because it causes few greenhouse gas emissions.

Guests: Kathryn Gilje, Executive Director, Pesticide Action Network North America, San Francisco, CA, www.panna.org ; José Hidalgo, Farmworker plaintiff, Salinas, CA.
