Call to Action
The Legislature has been convened in a Special Session to address the funding crisis in Disability Services.
Liz, Ernie and Barbara from our Participant Advisory Council are going with staff to the “We’re Here to Speak for Justice” rally in Sacramento on Thursday, September 3. The Governor has mandated that any increase in DDS funding must come from sources of revenue other than general fund revenues. In response, legislators are negotiating changes to the tax on managed care organizations to fund Medi-Cal, to reinstate IHSS hours, and to increase DDS funding by at least 10%.
