The California Senate Health Committee approved a bill Wednesday that would make undocumented immigrants eligible for Medi-Cal benefits.

Backers of the bill say it would prevent millions of people from having to forego needed medical care because they can’t afford it.

Democratic State Senator Ricardo Lara says SB 1005 would give immigrants access to a system they help pay for.
