SACRAMENTO–Today the Assembly Health Committee passed a package of three bills authored by Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) to improve the support California provides for vulnerable seniors.
Seniors are California’s fastest-growing population. Between now and 2026, the number of Californians 65 and older is expected to climb by 2.1 million, according to projections by the state Department of Finance. Seniors will make up a sharply larger share of the state’s population by 2060 — the only age bracket to grow in scale.
