In January 2021, Governor Newsom released California’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA), which lays out a ten-year plan to prepare the state for an aging and changing population. The MPA set five major goals: housing for all ages and stages; health reimagined; inclusion and equity, not isolation; caregiving; and affording aging. Now, in the 2021 legislative session, the Legislature has an opportunity to add its perspective to the path the state charts for older adults.
Justice in Aging has compiled a list of bills that directly affect older adults and people with disabilities and that align with the goals of the MPA. Inclusion on this list does not indicate endorsement by Justice in Aging.
