On the Docket: Health and More Health

Two more important budget hearings are coming up.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9:30 a.m. in Room 4203, the full Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee will take up the Governor’s proposed reductions to mental health, the Healthy Families Program, and Medi-Cal.

On Thursday at 9:00 a.m. in Room 4202, Assembly Budget Subcommittee #1 on Health and Human Services will be hearing and closing out all health-related issues. Most of the issues will be “vote only.” Topics to be discussed include proposed cuts to Medi-Cal, Healthy Families co-pays and premium increases, and cuts to mental health.

For more information on these proposals, see our summary of the Governor’s May Revision proposals.

As always, you can follow these hearings through The California Channel or the Senate and Assembly websites.
