Brown endorses state-run Medi-Cal expansion

Gov. Jerry Brown committed Tuesday to a state-based expansion of subsidized health care for low-income Californians, abandoning a proposal he had floated that would have required each of the state’s 58 counties to provide care for the low-income people in their communities. But Brown, in his revised budget for the coming year, said he still wants to redirect the lion’s share of the money the state now gives the counties to provide care to the uninsured.
