Legislature sends adult care bill to governor

The Legislature has finally sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill passed as part of the budget package a month ago that is meant to save health services for older adults. The measure, AB 96, creates a new program to replace Adult Day Health Care, which was eliminated in the budget. Brown, with some reluctance, did approve $85 million that was in the budget for services for low-income seniors who will be moved out of the Day Health Care Program.
