Jerry Brown sidesteps immigrant health care question
Sacramento Bee

Gov. Jerry Brown declined Thursday to specifically address a proposal to expand health care coverage to Californians in the country illegally. But what he said about legislation, generally, could give the bill’s proponents pause.

“As you know, I don’t give answers, almost invariably, on bills that have not reached my desk,” Brown told reporters at the Capitol. “I will just say generally that there are a lot of ideas that often are memorialized into bills that, when you price them out, they exceed the available money.”
