Governor Newsom Signs State Budget – Impacts to People with Disabilities and Their Families

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the state budget late Thursday, thus enacting several changes to services and supports impacting the disability community.


The $215 billion budget follows nearly six months of budget hearings in the Legislature on the Governor’s budget that he proposed in January and his updated May Revise and final negotiations between the leaders of the two houses of the Legislature and the Governor. The intellectual and developmental disability community will benefit from this budget through increased rates for services and supports, restoration of Medi-Cal benefits, and other specific investments.
