Governor, Legislature Must Protect Kids’ Medical Care
According to an opinion piece in Capitol Weekly, the state's sickest children face "unacceptably long wait times to see specialists, and the situation is quickly worsening as a direct result of the 10% mid-term state budget cut to" California Children's Services reimbursement rates. The opinion piece calls on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) and lawmakers to take action to ensure children's access to medical care.
