As the campaign season winds into a frenzy for the nation, elected leaders at Patricia Kay Beaver Elementary are settling into their desks. But they took time to hear from a member of the state’s leadership team as he took a campaign swing through Ceres.
“It’s good to see other people who come from little cities like Ceres and became really important people in the world,” said sixth-grader Delia Vidal after hearing Adam Gray speak Thursday.
California is cracking down on graft in the state’s system of medical care for injured workers with two bills recently signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The reforms will suspend felon medical providers from billing for workers’ compensation care and rein in a court-governed payment system that gave rise to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of unsanctioned treatment.
(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Adam C. Gray (D-Merced) today announced that his bill to eliminate an estimated $1 billion in workers’ compensation fraud annually was signed into law by Governor Brown. AB 1244 requires the Director of Health Care Services to notify the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation of a suspension of a medical provider from the Medi-Cal program. This includes if the medical provider was convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving fraud or abuse of the Medi-Cal program. Upon such notification, the Administrative Director would be required to immediately suspend that medical provider from the Workers’ Compensation system.
(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Adam C. Gray (D-Merced) announced today the signing of Assembly Bill 2048 by Governor Brown to attract and retain more doctors at health centers that serve the most impoverished and disadvantaged populations in the state.
The State Loan Repayment Program provides one million dollars in federal grant funds every year to physicians, dentists, and nurse practitioners in California who agree to practice medicine in health professional shortage areas. Gray’s bill makes federally qualified health centers, like Golden Valley Health Centers and Livingston Community Health, automatically eligible to participate in the program.
Assemblymembers Adam Gray (D-Merced) and Kristin Olsen (R-Riverbank) delivered 3,100 petitions to the State Water Resources Control Board this week, proclaiming their firm opposition to a recent proposal to allocate 40 percent of water along the Tuolumne River for the benefit of fish and wildlife in the Delta.
“The last report from the State Water Board proposed taking 35 percent of our water,” said Gray. “After a four year review process, during which the Board refused to engage with local stakeholders who live near and depend on these rivers, the number has now grown to 49 percent.
SACRAMENTO - Two lawmakers from the Modesto area urged a state board on Tuesday to rethink a plan for greatly increasing river flows.
The doubling of reservoir releases into the Stanislaus, Tuolumne and Merced rivers would devastate the region’s already wobbly economy, Assembly members Kristin Olsen and Adam Gray told the State Water Resources Control Board.
