From the Executive Summary
"Governor Schwarzenegger's preliminary 2004-05 Budget Bill proposed to eliminate a component of California's In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program serving approximately 68,000 individuals. This component, known as the Residual Program, included Protective Supervision and Domestic Care services, and services provided by parents and spouses. Under the then existing regulations and the state's approved state plan for Medicaid, these services did not qualify for shared financing with the Medicaid program and were thus funded solely by state and county sources. The objective of the administration's proposal was to obtain an estimated net savings from the IHSS program in Fiscal Year 2005 of $366 million.
