Achadjian breaks ranks on Medi-Cal
San Luis Obispo Tribune

A bipartisan bouquet is en route to Sacramento for Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, who was the only Republican in the state Legislature to vote in favor of bills expanding Medi-Cal.

The legislation, which passed both houses in spite of Republican opposition, is a first step in expanding Medi-Cal to cover another 1.2 million low-income Californians.

The enabling legislation will allow the state to take advantage of additional federal funding available through health care reform.
