California Governor’s Budget Proposes Medicaid Changes

This week, our In Focus section reviews California Gov., Jerry Brown’s proposed 2012-2013 state budget, focusing particularly on several important changes to Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program. The budget proposal, released last Thursday, January 5, pro-poses $4.4 billion in new taxes, which must be approved by voters, and includes trigger cuts to take place if the tax initiative fails at the voting booths.
