SB 2 /Prop 72
Health Insurance Act of 2003
Also known as SB 2, the Health Insurance Act of 2003, Proposition 72 sought to to ensure that employees get basic health coverage on the job and to expand such coverage to a million more workers, was defeated by a vote of 49.2% to 50.8%, a razor-thin margin of 180,426 votes out of over 12.6 million cast. It was the closest margin of the sixteen initiatives on California's November 2004 ballot.
