Citing the devastating impact that pending Medi-Cal payment cuts would have on the North State’s most vulnerable patients, local hospital leaders in Redding today joined with patient families to call on state lawmakers to enact new legislation that would preserve the state’s health care safety net.

Two bills now making their way through the state Legislature – Assembly Bill 900 by Assemblymember Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) and Senate Bill 640 by Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Long Beach) – would reverse Medi-Cal cuts that were enacted by the passage of AB 97 in 2011.
