7/19/2019 1:37:53 PM

SACRAMENTO (AP)—A California proposal aimed at limiting high medical bills from emergency room visits stalled Wednesday, with the author saying opposition from hospitals was insurmountable this year. Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu said he'll continue working on the bill and try to bring it back next year. It's the latest attempt by a state Legislature or Congress to rein in exorbitant hospitals bills when patients need emergency care but have little say about what hospitals they are taken to. Chiu's bill would have capped what emergency patients pay at their copays...

7/10/2019 11:00:44 AM

COMPTON—If the 6.4 earthquake that rattled the earth from Mexico to Nevada the morning of the Fourth of July didn’t get Southern Californians attention, the 7.1 encore two days later certainly did.

And seismologists from the United States Geological...
