Interview: The Politics of Cuts
Senator Kevin de León represents California's 22nd Senate District. It includes all or parts of the City of Los Angeles, Alhambra, East Los Angeles, Florence-Graham, Maywood, San Marino, South Pasadena, Vernon, and Walnut Park.
We asked for his thoughts on the process that led to cuts in the Adult Day Health Care program, and what the potential loss means to his constituents.
Sen. de León also spoke with us about the prospects for protecting benefits for the elderly given the current economic and political climate in California.
