BILL NUMBER:  AB 97
  VETOED	DATE: 10/09/2015




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
plans.

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.

Sincerely,



Edmund G. Brown Jr.
