Developments in California In-Home Support Services Case
See this from California Healthline. It begins:
A federal judge temporarily halted automatic "trigger cuts" to the state's budget that would reduce In-Home Supportive Services by 20%. A hearing on the issue, originally scheduled this month, is now scheduled Jan. 19.
In the meantime, a state declaration filed in the case said 66,000 Californians would be exempt from the cuts -- including all children younger than age 21.
"In total, approximately 66,000 IHSS recipients will be completely exempt from the 20% reduction, which is roughly 15% of all IHSS recipients," according to a declaration by Eileen Carroll, deputy director of the Adult Programs Division at the Department of Social Services.
