Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The sharp spike in California's unemployment rate - it's now over 12 percent of the labor force - means an equally sharp spike in the number of Californians who have lost their health insurance, a new report by Families USA, a Washington-based advocate for universal health care, concludes.

Families USA's report, issued today, estimates that California's medically uninsured population, one of the nation's highest, jumped by 661,600 persons this year to more than 6 million - by far the largest numerical increase of any state and one of the highest proportionate increases.

The state-by-state report is available here.
