The bills would make more than one million more Californians eligible for Medi-Cal coverage, using federal money under the Affordable Care Act.

The expanded program would include all individuals with an annual income of about 15,000 dollars.

Supporters say the measures would also streamline the enrollment process. Asset tests will be eliminated, and it will be easier to reaffirm eligibility from year to year.
