Sacramento Business Journal

Health care providers and community groups submitted 1.3 million signatures to the state Monday to qualify an initiative for the November ballot that seeks to provide a stable source of funding for the Medi-Cal program and nail down how it is spent. More than 615,000 people in the greater Sacramento region — defined as Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado and San Joaquin counties — are enrolled in Medi-Cal, including about 329,000 children.
