Wary Of Cost, Gov Commits Calif. To Health Reform
County officials and health advocates say the governor could be overreacting.
"It has been hard to really pin down on where the administration believes these hidden costs come from," said Vanessa Cajina of the Western Center on Law and Poverty, which advocates for the poor. "This is a very fiscally conservative governor, and any kind of expansion of services that aren't totally federally mandated, they're going to be going through with a fine-tooth comb."
In a statement, Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer William Fujioka said, "It is unclear why the state needs county money to implement a Medicaid expansion that is paid for 100 percent by the federal government for the first three years."
