With just over a week until the deadline to sign up for health care under the Affordable Care Act, Rep. Mark Takano and Assemblyman Jose Medina are holding a joint news conference at a Riverside health clinic Friday in a push to increase enrollment.

"This congressional district has an uninsured rate of 24 percent," Takano spokesman Brett Morrow said. "It's really imperative for people to take advantage of the Affordable Care Act and the affordable health care plans it offers."
