Medi-Cal asset seizure bill heads to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration
The Mercury News

After passing the state Senate and Assembly unanimously this week, a bill limiting California’s seizure of assets from the estates of Medi-Cal recipients is headed toward Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk.

Hanging in the balance are the hopes — and homes — of thousands of worried Bay Area residents and Medi-Cal enrollees like Chris Darling of Richmond, Anne-Louise Vernon of Campbell and Eliza O’Malley of El Cerrito.

Brown has until Sept. 30 to sign the bill into law or veto it.
