Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has just vetoed AB1113 (Brownley), which would have increased the number of disabled Californians eligible for the California Working Disabled Program and extended the program another five years beyond the September 2008 sunset date.
The program allows workers who are disabled and earning less than 250% of poverty ($25,500 annually) to buy Medi-Cal coverage. AB1113 would have allowed workers to keep their coverage for 12 months if they were temporarily without work.
