|Budget Issue:||The 2011-12 Budget: Options to Achieve Savings In The Regional Center System|
|Program:||Department of Developmental Services|
|Finding or Recommendation:||We recommend approval of the Governor's budget proposals to (1) extend the 4.25 percent provider payment reduction and the commensurate reduction to regional center (RC) operations, and (2) obtain additional federal funds for services provided through the developmental centers and the RCs. We also recommend the Legislature either expand the existing Family Cost Participation Program or implement means testing to determine who is eligible to receive these state services.|
