Finally, a budget!

The budget passed the Legislature earlier today.

It’s unclear what cuts Governor Schwarzenegger will make with his “blue pencil” veto authority, and we’ll see if those cuts–made as a way to get Republican Senate votes–will include health care items. We’ll be watching and reporting…

The implications for health reform are also unclear. After a 52-day standoff on the budget, does he still think he can get the 2/3 vote for health reforms in his proposal? And if not, will that have an impact on what he is willing to sign? Stayed tuned.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
