“There is no question that Governor Newsom is California’s health and human services governor.
The governor’s Budget makes bold investments to advance key health and human services priorities including quality, affordable health care regardless of your age or income; transformed health care services through the Medi-Cal program; lower prescription drug costs; integrated behavioral health care services; and support for those who struggle with homelessness. Beyond the new investments this Budget makes, we are deeply grateful for the continued support of programs that help change the arc of people’s lives.
This Budget is a reflection of our shared values as Californians: It goes beyond funding Departments and programs. It invests in all of us as human beings, each with our own strengths and struggles. The Health and Human Services Budget proposals are the foundation of a Healthy California for All, and I look forward to working with the governor, state Legislators and stakeholders to enact these critically important priorities.”
