June 24, 2020 -- The California Dental Association (CDA) is applauding lawmakers for the proposed state budget, which preserves adult dental benefits for low-income residents under the Medi-Cal dental program.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to sign the 2020-2021 budget, which also includes supplemental rate increases, by June 26.
