California's revised budget plan is expected to eliminate health programs

Los Angeles Times, May 13, 2010

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to present a revised budget plan that would dismantle some of California's healthcare programs after efforts to scale them back have been reversed by federal courts. Administration officials declined to reveal which specific programs the governor would eliminate. But officials involved in the budget process, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they would probably include home healthcare for the elderly and disabled. The Schwarzenegger administration may also propose the dismantling of the Healthy Families program, which uses federal money to help provide health insurance for about 900,000 low-income children, the Los Angeles Times reports.
