- Statute of Limitations for Sexual Assault and Molestation (SAM) moves from age 26 to age 40, with a five year statute for “recovered or repressed” memory from time of discovery
- There is a three-year retroactive window opened by AB 218’s enactment that permits old claims to be revived.

Whether you follow politics or not, with the 2020 election cycle upon us, there is much debate about how to address health insurance nationally. Generally speaking, the proposals aim to replace most current public and private health insurance with a new federal program that would guarantee coverage for all or nearly all US residents. Coverage may include medical, dental, vision and/or long term care and may eliminate deductibles, copayments and/or restrictive networks. Proposals are supported by most Democrats and about half of Independents, with most Republicans opposing.
How much might it cost and who would pay for it?
