MNO Update: Bill AB 1319

As direct result of the Jewish Home’s efforts, Assembly Member Matt Dababneh introduced Bill AB 1319 on February 27th, 2015. The bill is proposed as an act to amend the existing legislation that determines the amount of money low-income individuals will receive each month. If passed, Bill AB 1319 will increase the amount of money allotted to the medically needy seniors of California from $20 to $50 each month.

On Friday, March 13th, Assembly Member Cheryl R. Brown, Chair of the Aging and Long-Term Care Committee met with Eisenberg Village representatives Douglas Tucker, Ashley Teal, and Alison Shaw to discuss Dababneh’s Bill. Assembly Member Brown informed the Jewish Home representatives that she fully intends to continue her commitment to the seniors of California and support AB 1319.
