Doctors challenge Jerry Brown over children’s health
Los Angeles Times

The state’s largest association of doctors is making a last-ditch attempt to resurrect a popular children’s health program eliminated by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this year. The California Medical Assn., which represents more than 30,000 California doctors, is pushing legislation in the final days of the legislative year to resurrect Healthy Families, which provides medical care to about 875,000 California children. The program was eliminated under the budget approved by Democrats and signed by Brown earlier this year.
