Last Tuesday, the Assembly Health Committee voted on SB 10 (Lara), which expands health care coverage to all Californians, regardless of immigration status, by authorizing the state to apply for a federal waiver that would allow undocumented immigrants to buy coverage through Covered California using their own money.
Consumer and immigrant advocates showed their strong support for SB 10, testifying in support of this important bill and submitting letters of support. Advocates have been working for expanding access to quality, affordable health care coverage to all Californians, regardless of immigrant status. SB 10 now heads to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
