Critics Say Brown’s Budget Proposal Could Do More To Increase Access to Care for Low-Income Californians
Critics of Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) newly released fiscal year 2015-2016 budget proposal say it fails to address the needs of low-income California residents and increase the number of doctors willing to treat those patients. Brown defended his efforts to expand access to public health care and noted that his budget proposal allocates $17.7 billion from the general fund for health care for low-income residents.
