A broad coalition of health care providers and community groups announced today that they have collected and are submitting more than one million voter signatures statewide in order to qualify the Medi-Cal Funding and Accountability Act of 2014 for the November ballot. The measure builds upon SB 239, an important bipartisan agreement passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Jerry Brown in 2013, with no opposition votes cast, to provide a stable source of health care funding to serve California’s most vulnerable citizens: children, seniors, and low income residents.

The California Hospital Association, along with Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, hosted an event to highlight the submission of signatures in the Bay Area.
