To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 97 without my signature.

This bill would require the California Department of Social Services
to reprogram the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) payroll system so
that paychecks issued by the system would include payment for home
care service hours authorized by both IHSS and managed health care

While I support streamlining the payment system for home care service
workers, we have yet to find a permanent fund source to restore the
seven percent reduction in recipients' authorized hours.  When that
fiscal uncertainty has been resolved, I would be open to
reconsidering the policy in this bill.
