(Sacramento) – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) has announced legislation to build on California’s progress in implementing the Affordable Care Act by expanding Medi-Cal eligibility for Californians. The measure (AB1x1), which will be introduced in the Special Session on Healthcare announced by Governor Brown in his State of the State address, will further cement California as the national leader in healthcare reform. “California is the national leader on implementing Healthcare Reform, and I am pleased to be authoring this critical measure which will ensure more Californians have access to quality, affordable healthcare,” said Speaker Pérez. “By expanding Medi-Cal eligibility, we will ensure more than one million low-income Californians have quality healthcare, which will make significant federal funds available to California to help strengthen our overall economic recovery.” Here’s more from the Speaker in this Assembly Access video.
