Senator sends letter to Governor Brown asking to fund Denti-Cal

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Senate Republican Leader Jean Fuller (Bakersfield) and Assemblyman Republican Leader Chad Mayes (Yucca Valley) sent a letter to Governor Jerry Brown, calling for him to support legislation that will fully fund Denti-Cal, which they call a broken government program that is supposed to provide basic dental care to 13 million low-income Californians, including over 5 million children.

The bill will direct available money from the tobacco tax (Proposition 56), which was approved by voters in November.
