(Sacramento) - Today Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) testified to the Assembly Health Committee on behalf of his bill, AB 1X-1, which expands the Medi-Cal program and will cover over 1 million low-income and uninsured Californians. The federal government will fund the health coverage expansion provided in the bill for the first three years and will continue to cover eventually 90 percent of the cost. Speaker Pérez told the Committee, "AB 1X-1 implements key provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act that provide health coverage for low-income individuals through the federal Medicaid program."
