On January 5, Assembly Constitutional Amendment 11 was introduced by Assembly Members Ash Kalra and Alex Lee proposing to enact significant tax increases to fund universal single-payer health care coverage and cost controls. Co-authors include Assembly Members Mia Bonta, Wendy Carrillo, Laura Friedman, Adrin Nazarian, and Miguel Santiago, as well as Senators Dave Cortese, Lena Gonzalez, Sydney Kamlager, Mike McGuire, and Scott Wiener.

ACA 11 would propose an amendment to the California Constitution to add Section 16 to Article XIII B and to add Article XIII E. If passed by a 2/3 vote of each house of the Legislature, the measure would be placed on the statewide ballot in November to enact significant tax increases to fund health care coverage and cost controls.
