SB 974 (Lara) & AB 2965 (Arambula)

Two bills are introduced: SB 974 (Lara), to allow undocumented elders ages 65 and older to enroll in Medi-Cal, and AB 2965 (Arambula), to do so for young adults ages 19-25.

They garner widespread support into the California State Legislature, but do not pass due to Governor Jerry Brown’s unwillingness to fund the expansions.
