Budget Day!

Both the Assembly and Senate are meeting today to consider the budget bills. We appreciate the preservation of basic health services such as Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, Adult Day Health Care, and other human services in the compromise. It could have been worse, but it’s not over: we recognize that we are not yet safe from cuts. The Governor still has line item veto power to cut programs, and there are still no new revenues in the budget — and in fact gives out more tax breaks, digging our hole deeper — which puts health and human services at risk for more cuts in the very near future. We are concerned about the prospect of spending caps.

Stay tuned…
