Gov. Brown's Budget Shows Support For Medi-Cal
Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget shows continued support for California's Medicaid program as talks of a repeal of the Affordable Care Act gain momentum. He has proposed an $18.9 billion budget for Medi-Cal, the state's insurance program for low-income individuals. Brown allotted $1.6 billion from California's General Fund for the health program. In last year's budget, $888 million came from the General Fund. Brown says repealing the ACA would be difficult and disruptive. (Johnson, 1/11)
