Speaker Karen Bass gives an update on the budget crisis. It’s discouraging that the Governor seems to be using the budget crisis to demand unrelated policy changes from the Legislature, even allowing the budget situation to get worse.
Some of the Governor’s so-called “reforms” include changing the entire way we enroll people in Medi-Cal and other human services. But it seems its more about eliminating the people who help people navigate the complicated process of getting enrolled, than actually removing those complicated procedures in the first place.
Hopefully there will be more progress in the coming days.
