Daily Democrat

California will become the largest state in the nation to provide health care to all children, regardless of their immigration status, under a new law signed Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown.

The Health for All Kids Act, Senate Bill 4, was sponsored by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Long Beach. It opens up health coverage to undocumented immigrants by expanding Medi-Cal coverage, making California the state with the largest immigrant population to implement such a policy.
