Governor Newsom Statement on Fifth Circuit Affordable Care Act Ruling

SACRAMENTO -- Governor Gavin Newsom today issued the following statement regarding today's ruling on the Affordable Care Act by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit:


“The Affordable Care Act has transformed and saved countless lives in California and across our nation, and California has long led the fight to protect the law and all those who count on it. Although the Fifth Circuit decision creates uncertainty for the Affordable Care Act and the millions of Americans who rely on its critical protections, Californians should know that nothing in that decision impacts access to affordable healthcare in our state today. No matter what happens in Washington or Texas, our state will push forward on our efforts to ensure healthcare access for all Californians and protect the Affordable Care Act for the nation. Our fight is not over.”
