California May Lose $315 Million to Avoid Freeing Inmates.  HOW DO WE STOP California Governor Jerry Brown, he says he needs $315 million from state reserves (middle Class Tax Dollars) this year to meet a federal court order to reduce prison overcrowding and avoid the release of  prison Industry Jobs. pursuant to court order.

ALEC costs tax payers twice; 1)  lost jobs in the community and;  2) tearing apart families, resultant of a war created by the state in the first place by creation of excessive ALEC laws.

Legislative leaders and Gov. Jerry Brown (D) agreed on a budget plan this week that restores partial funding for dental services in Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program.

“Dental care is so essential to physical health and employability,” Steinberg said. “The current alternatives are gum disease and use of hospital emergency rooms at the expense of taxpayers, which is unacceptable.”

Northern California legislators and dental providers have been at the forefront of a campaign over the past four years to get dental coverage for Medi-Cal adults restored. For many advocates and stakeholders, this week’s budget news was considered a partial victory. Although not the complete restoration of $131 million sought, the state plans to spend about $16.9 million this fiscal year and $77 million next year on dental coverage. The money will provide preventive care, dental restorations and full dentures for adult beneficiaries of Medi-Cal.

Restoring adult coverage in Denti-Cal was considered a priority for California Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento).

“Dental care is so essential to physical health and employability,” Steinberg said. “The current alternatives are gum disease and use of hospital emergency rooms at the expense of taxpayers, which is unacceptable.”
