Assemblyman Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, and Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi, D-Hayward, have been assigned to an Assembly task force charged with hashing out a health care reform bill.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called the Legislature into a special session this month to tackle unresolved healthcare and water bills.

Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez named DeSaulnier and Hayashi to the Assembly Healthcare Reform Working Group, which started meeting this week.

The working group will attempt to draft a healthcare proposal acceptable to Republicans, Democrats and the governor who have split on how to pay for coverage and reduce insurance costs.
