Memorandum to the Board of Supervisors providing pursuit of County position on state legislation. The County supports AB 1453 (Monning) and SB 951 (Hernandez) to establish California's Essential Health Benefits benchmark plan under the ACA like the Kaiser Small Group HMO plan contract. Based on additional information recently received, the estimated County impact is now projected to be $114.6 million in FY 2012-13. The increase in projected loss does not affect the County General Fund because the loss of funding is primarily attributed to $61.3 million in reductions to the CalWORKS Program. Key budget changes affecting the County are included.
