pdf What Governor Brown’s 2013-14 Proposed Budget Means for Health Care in California

THE GOOD NEWS: NO DEFICIT, NO CUTS: On January 10, 2013 Governor Jerry Brown announced the first budget in many years that projects no deficit. Thanks to Governor Brown’s leadership and the voters of California, Prop 30 prevented cuts to education and other vital services by providing needed revenues to balance the billions in budget cuts made last year and previously. So, for the first time in many years, the budget did not proposed multi-billion cuts to health care or other vital services. Governor Brown also endorsed California's implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and made the historic commitment for the state to go ahead with the ACA's Medi-Cal expansion to 1.4 million low-income Californians, bringing in $2-4 billion in federal funds into our health system.
