Calif. Senate Looks To Restore Social Services Safety Net
On Thursday, California Senate Leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) said that this year, Democratic lawmakers will try to restore the social services safety net, among other things, by offering changes to the state budget. Brown has defended his fiscal year 2015-2016 budget proposal, saying that about one-third of the budget is dedicated to serving low-income individuals through various programs, including child care and health care.
