Not everything about the state budget is clear or straightforward. It requires a lot of attention to detail and keeping up with lots of hearings and twists and turns in negotiations between lawmakers. Well, CapRadio has a person who follows this very closely in Capitol Bureau Chief, Ben Adler.
We’ll hear more about the discussion about subsidies for health insurance, covering younger undocumented Californians and other developments in health insurance.
