KESQ: “Ruiz [Rep-D], a physician himself, refers to the physician shortage as a “crisis” in his letter and contends the budget redirects Prop 56 funds away from patient access to care and towards the general fund.”

“We are concerned that your FY 2017-2018 state budget redirects Prop 56 revenues away from Graduate Medical Education programs intended to address California’s physician shortages, as well as Medicaid payment increases intended to improve access to care for Medi-Cal patients.
This threatens the success of California’s Medicaid expansion at a time when we’re fighting to sustain it against attempts by the (Trump) Administration to decrease Medicaid funding,” the letter read.”

Reports have 37 of the 53 representatives, from both parties, signing against Gov Brown for robbing their cigarette tax.

How is Gov Brown funding CALPERS…?
