Red Bluff Daily News

In a strong display of bipartisan agreement, Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber) and Assemblymember Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) said today that restoring Medi-Cal funding for California’s most vulnerable patients must be a priority when the Legislature returns this month. “The message to our colleagues should be we have unfinished business,” Alejo said. “The Assembly unanimously passed Assembly Bill 900 to reverse these cuts. When the Senate returns this month we are confident our colleagues will also vote for this legislation.”
