State probes Medi-Cal officials’ travel
San Francisco Chronicle

Three Medi-Cal pharmacy officials are under investigation by the state for failing to disclose flights, hotel rooms and meals paid for by nonprofit groups that are primarily funded by big drug makers.

The state’s Fair Political Practices Commission opened its investigation last month in response to a California Watch story that detailed how the state officials had failed to report the trips, according to the commission’s executive director Roman Porter.
