Governor Brown Vetoes AB 96

This afternoon, Governor Brown vetoed AB 96, a bill  advocates argued would provide a critical new program, Keeping Adults Free from Institutions, to replace the Adult Day Health Care program.  The Governor’s veto comes despite efforts by the Democratic leadership in the Legislature to sign the bill into law.

Adult Day Health Care will continue to be covered as a Medi-Cal optional benefit through December 1st, 2011.  You can read the Governor’s veto message of AB 96 here.
