Keeping the Health Care Promise to Californians

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

(Sacramento) – Led by Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), Chair of the Assembly Public Health and Developmental Services Committee and Co-Chair of the Conference Committee in the Second Extraordinary Session, the State Assembly has approved historic legislation to restructure the state’s MCO tax (ABx2-1 and SBx2-2). “This vote was the result of months of negotiations, and once again proved that politics is the art of the possible,” said Assemblymember Bonta. “California’s existing MCO tax needed to be restructured, and I’m thrilled that we accomplished this goal while also providing critical funding for Medi-Cal, developmental disability services, and Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facilities.” Both bills are now headed to the Governor's desk.
