Managed Care Tax Deal Hikes Spending for Developmentally Disabled

State lawmakers have announced a deal to re-vamp a tax on managed care organizations that is set to end this summer. The deal provides funding for increases in services for developmentally disabled Californians. It also sets the stage for ending the special legislative session on health care, a move that would let the recently passed “Death with Dignity” law go into effect. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
