was removed from the state budget put into the Special Session and
still no decisions have been made. Meanwhile the urgency for our
community continues to increase and the state of collapse worsens
daily. Please take some time during the legislative recess to meet
with your representative in your district. You can either set up a
formal meeting in their district office or just go to one of their local events and talk to them there.
The Lanterman Coalition has developed a variety of talking points
from several perspectives of parents, self-advocates, and other
stakeholders in the developmental services system. For more

Cuts to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) On the Table to Pay for Highways
week (July 20-24), the Senate plans to take up legislation to fund our
nation's highway system. On the table are amendments to partially pay
for the highways bill by cutting Social Security, including
proposals to cut benefits for people who receive both SSDI and
Unemployment Insurance (UI).
Don't cut Social Security to pay for highways. Both are vital, but Social Security must not become a piggybank to pay for important but unrelated programs.
Reject any proposals to pay for highways by cutting Social Security, including
proposals to cut Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for people
who are trying to work, and qualify for Unemployment Insurance (UI) after losing their job through no fault of their own.
Any cuts would erode the financial security of millions of Americans who rely on Social Security, including SSDI.
SSDI for beneficiaries who also receive UI because they have attempted
to work - as encouraged by law - but lose their job would hurt the
economic security of SSDI beneficiaries and their families, and create
new work disincentives. SSDI and UI are earned benefits, paid for by
workers and their employers. SSDI beneficiaries who try to work should
not be treated differently from other American workers. SSDI and UI
should be there for them in their time of need. It's fair and it's

are a major health and safety concern for both children and adults with
intellectual and developmental disabilities. People with developmental
disabilities are at significantly greater risk for falls and these
falls frequently result in serious injury and hospitalization. Studies
have found injuries in this population often lead to the need to more
assistance with daily living, less mobility, skilled care, psychosocial
changes (specifically fear of falling again), reduction in inclusive
activities and increase risk for isolation. Risk factors related to
falls have been identified - demographic, medical, psychosocial,
environmental and physical activity - yet researchers suggest fall
prevention programs for people with intellectual and developmental
disabilities is a very understudied area.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center at the University of Massachusetts
Medical School is studying a new program the uses customized care plans
to evaluate fall reduction among people with developmental disabilities.

Special Olympics athletes to a special ceremony Monday at the state
Capitol, Gov. Jerry Brown called the competition "one of the ways that
people of profound differences can find their common humanity."
know how Brown, a former Jesuit seminarian, can give substance to that
soaring rhetoric about common humanity: He can grant the immediate 10
percent funding hike for developmental services for which the Lanterman Coalition, a bipartisan majority of members of the state Legislature, and this editorial board have been arguing these past several months. It's one thing to publicly appreciate the Special Olympics World Games,
a fantastic athletic and community event that will begin July 25 in Los
Angeles. It's quite another to put a small fraction of the state's
burgeoning tax revenue toward improving the lives of Californians with
developmental disabilities and those who love and care for them. So far,
the Brown administration has been a roadblock.
money's there, according to the Department of Finance. So we call on
Michael Cohen, the governor's finance director, to get his head out of
his Excel spreadsheets long enough to visit with the governor one of the
many facilities where people with developmental disabilities and their
caretakers struggle day after day with inadequate resources. S.T.E.P.
- Strategies to Empower People - is such a place, and its main office
is just 10 minutes from the state Capitol. Jacquie Foss, the CEO there,
said she would love to give the governor and his finance director a
tour. (email@example.com; 916-679-1555).
would note that, for the first time in her 27 years running S.T.E.P.,
she's had to tell the regional centers she can take no more referrals.
That her annual staff turnover has reached 50 percent, with some
staffers telling her they were leaving to make more money at Wal-Mart.
That clients with autism - who most of all need structure and continuity
- regress to square one every time that turnover relegates them to a
new caregiver. It's time for some real-world experience to color the
abstract, bean-counters' view of what needs to be done. And it can be
done. Revenue has been streaming into state coffers. The Department of
Finance's July cash report reads in part: "Preliminary
General Fund cash for June was $815 million above the 2015-16 Budget Act
forecast of $16.093 billion. Year-to-date revenues are $732 million
above the forecast of $114.124 billion." It would take less than half
that "unexpected" cash to effect the one-time, 10 percent funding
increase for regional centers and vendor rates that the developmental
community has been asking for. We're pleased that legislators today
introduced special session bills to increase developmental services
funding and to fix a Medi-Cal funding problem.
will take a look at the bills introduced separately by Democrats and
Republicans as details become available; we look forward to them working
through the process and sending final legislation to the governor. But
the wall that legislators ran into during budget negotiations on this
issue was the Brown administration. The governor and his top staffers
should spend some time discovering their common humanity.
Press Release Assemblymember Marc Levine July 16, 2015
By Michael Miiller
Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) introduced legislation to
close a funding gap for Medi-Cal and other vital health
services, bringing a needed solution to the legislative extraordinary
session on health funding.
fix would preserve $1.1 billion in federal matching funds that were
threatened after the federal government rejected a sales tax on Medi-Cal
plans that California had previously used to provide its share of
Medicaid funding. Resolving the problem is vital to implementation of
the Affordable Care Act. AB 4 (Levine) 2nd Ext. also provides needed
funding for in-home support services and developmental services.
applaud Governor Brown for convening this extraordinary session of the
Legislature to act on this expeditiously, as waiting until 2016 is
irresponsible," said Levine, a Member of the Committee on Public Health
and Developmental Services in the Second Extraordinary Session. "This
funding fix is broad-based, stable, and solves the problem we were
called here to address. Almost half of all California's children
receive health care through Medi-Cal, so we must come up with a real,
sustainable solution now. I offer this potential solution, and welcome
other proposals so that the Legislature can act on this crisis before
adjourning in September."
4 (Levine) 2nd Ext. would generate revenue through a broad-based
Managed Care Organization (MCO) flat tax of $7.88 per person per month, a
solution that provides $1.1 billion needed for Medi-Cal to prevent the
loss of federal funds. There are 45 MCOs providing managed care coverage
for 21 million Californians. Roughly 9 million of them are Medi-Cal
patients. MCOs receive federal and state reimbursement for costs of
services provided to Medi-Cal Californians.
AB 4 (Levine) 2nd Ext. would accomplish the following:
Prevent a potential $1.1 billion funding shortfall for Medi-Cal;
Restore previous cuts to Medi-Cal reimbursement rates and move to fully fund Medi-Cal;
Reinstate In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) hours; and
Increase developmental services funding.
currently taxes only Medicaid MCOs, an approach recently rejected by
the federal government. The federal Department of Health and Human
Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) notified
California in July, 2014 that our current MCO tax is not in compliance
with federal rules. CMS provided direction to California to construct a
new MCO tax because of the fact that states do not have the "ability to
tax only Medicaid MCOs. In order for a health care-related tax on MCOs
to be permissible . . . the tax would have to apply more generally to
all MCOs." AB 4 (Levine) 2nd Ext. would resolve this problem.
for Medi-Cal, IHSS, and developmental services is critical. These
programs suffered deep cuts in the Great Recession, experienced
increased costs, and have yet to receive adequate funding. Several
organizations have called for long term funding for Medi-Cal, IHSS, and
community system for people with intellectual and developmental
disabilities is currently collapsing due to historic divestment away
from supporting some of our most vulnerable citizens," said Tony
Anderson, executive director of The Arc California. "AB 4 (Levine) 2nd
Ext. is an urgently needed bold policy that breaks through the delay.
Every day that passes means more individuals and families are at risk."

Sacramento, CA -- The Save Lives California coalition praised Senate
and Assembly Democrats for announcing a bold package of bills to fight
the No. 1 cause of preventable death in California: tobacco use. The
bills will be taken up during the 2nd extraordinary session, called by
Governor Jerry Brown to address healthcare. In a display of strong
cooperation and determination, the two houses have each introduced the
same six bills aimed at preventing death from tobacco-related diseases
and reducing costs of smoking on California's health system by reducing
smoking and deterring young people from finding smoking attractive.
"This package of bills represents a tremendous step forward for a
healthier California," said Luther Cobb, MD, California Medical
Association (CMA) president. "These bills will help to keep tobacco out
of the hands of our youth while also helping to increase the overall
health and wellness of Californians ."
"The addictive power of
nicotine causes three out of every four kids who try cigarettes to
continue smoking into adulthood where half of them will die from
tobacco-related illnesses," said American Cancer Society Cancer Action
Network Vice President Jim Knox. "We need to dramatically reduce those
odds." "Dentists have long stood as an important line of defense not
just for our patients' oral health, but their overall health," said CDA
President Walt G. Weber, DDS. "Every day, our members see the
devastation caused by cigarettes and other forms of tobacco use." "These
bills save lives by stopping young people from picking up cigarettes,
and by strengthening our health care system, which must deal with the
damage caused by smoking-related diseases in our communities," said
Laphonza Butler, president of SEIU California and SEIU United Long-Term
Care Workers (ULTCW). "The Save Lives Coalition is proud to work with
legislative leaders to reduce the toll smoking takes on Californians'
"This package of bills will increase public health
and reduce teen smoking," Paul Knepprath, vice president, policy &
public affairs for Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California. "This is
a huge step in the right direction to ensure that our kids and our
communities are healthier." "Taken together, this legislation is
essential to building a healthier, smoke-free California," said Olivia
J. (Gertz) Diaz-Lapham, president and CEO, American Lung Association in
California. "The net effect of these bills would be millions of lives
and dollars saved in our state." "This is an opportunity California
can't afford to miss," said Dr. Kirk Knowlton, American Heart
Association (AHA) Western States Affiliate (WSA) Board President.
"Smoking contributes directly to heart disease and stroke, the number 1
and number 5 leading causes of death for Californians. The passage of
this package of bills will have an immediate, life-saving impact by
reducing the number one preventable cause of pre-mature death and
The Legislature will evaluate the following bills during the extraordinary session:
1. SB 5 X2 (Leno)/ AB 6 X2 (Cooper) Add e-cigarettes to existing tobacco products definition. Senator Mark Leno
This bill addresses growing public health concerns about the
unregulated use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) in California.
It includes e-cigarettes within the existing tobacco products
definition, thereby restricting the use of e-cigarettes in the same
locations as traditional cigarettes. It will also increase the penalties
and enforcement options for selling e-cigarettes to minors and require
e-cigarette retailers to be licensed.
2. SB 6 X2 (Monning)/ AB 7 X2 (Stone)
Close loopholes in smoke-free workplace laws, including hotel lobbies,
small businesses, break rooms, and tobacco retailers. Senator Bill
Monning and In 1994, California led the nation when it passed a
smoke-free workplace law. This groundbreaking law helped protect
millions of workers and business patrons from the health dangers
associated with secondhand smoke, including cancer, heart disease and
stroke, and respiratory diseases. However, that law, which included a
handful of exemptions, now lags behind other states' smoke free
workplace laws because of those exemptions. This bill repeals most of
3. SB 7 X2 (Hernandez)/ AB 8 X2 (Wood) Increase age of sale for tobacco products to 21. Senator Ed Hernandez and
It is estimated that 90 percent of tobacco users start prior to age 21,
and 80 percent of lifetime users start before the age of 18. By
increasing the minimum legal age to 21, this bill intends to prevent or
severely restrict youth access to these highly addictive and deadly
4. SB 8 X2 (Liu)/ AB 9 X2 (Thurmond and Nazarian) Require all schools to be tobacco free. Senator Carol Liu and Assembly
This bill is aimed at reducing smoking prevalence among youth in
California schools. Currently, only school districts and county offices
of education that receive Proposition 99 Tobacco tax funding are
required to adopt and enforce a tobacco-free campus policy. This bill
would close that gap by requiring that all districts adopt 100%
5. SB 9 X2 (McGuire)/ AB 10 X2 (Bloom) Allow local jurisdictions to tax tobacco. Senator Mike McGuire and Assembly
This bill would allow counties to levy taxes on tobacco distributers.
It would be subject to the usual rules for the adoption of such taxes.
6. SB 10 X2 (Beall) / AB 11 X2 (Nazarian) Establish an annual Board of Equalization (BOE) tobacco licensing fee program.
Establish an annual Board of Equalization (BOE) tobacco licensing fee
