Homecare Advocates Urge the California Legislature: Stand up to Governor
Date:1/8/2010

Don't put Californians at Risk; Don't eliminate 375,000 Jobs

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Representatives of more than 450,000 seniors and people with disabilities and those who care for them today urged the State Legislature to fight Gov. Schwarzenegger's mean-spirited and hypocritical proposal to destroy the In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program.

In his 2010-2011 spending plan released today, the governor proposes to effectively dismantle IHSS, a nationally recognized program which helps 450,000 low-income disabled, senior and blind Californians stay safely at home and avoid unnecessary, expensive and unwanted institutionalization.

The Governor's 2010-2011 spending plan goes further than last year's budget proposal, which proposed throwing more than 400,000 elderly, blind and disabled Californians -- 90 percent of all IHSS recipients -- out of the program. While the Legislature firmly rejected that plan, it did vote in July for a proposal from the so-called "Big 5" -- Gov. Schwarzenegger, Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, then-Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, and Republican leaders Senator Dennis Hollingsworth and Assembly Member Mike Vilines -- to eliminate or drastical
