Henry A.J. Ramos, Insight president, testified before the California Assembly Budget Committee on Health & Human Services


Henry A.J. Ramos, Insight president, testified before the California Assembly Budget Committee on Health &  Human Services on Feb. 26. “California’s recovery is underway, but it is underpowered. There is a strong business case for supporting hard-working Californians, our children and our elders, by putting dollars in hand in our local economies.” Ramos detailed the evolution of measuring poverty and support for reducing it, noting no change in the percentage of Californians who fall below the federal Supplemental Poverty Measurement – 23.8%, or nearly nine million residents, in the past year.
