California poised to go further than any state to insure the undocumented—too pricey, or about time?

A clock is ticking: The state is required to adopt a budget this month, and the Democrats who control Sacramento are divided between two options.

They’ve all agreed to extend coverage to young adults through age 25, and the Senate would include undocumented seniors, too.
