Rapid Response Roundup: Schwarzenegger's budget

January 8, 2010

Craig E. Thompson, Executive Director of AIDS Project Los Angeles:

"Keeping ADAP whole is courageous in this budget environment -- but it's also smart, cost-effective public health spending. People with HIV/AIDS who rely on this program must have access to these drug therapies. Without treatment, they will get sick, or worse, and end up costing the state much more for catastrophic health care."
