(Sacramento) - Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio (D-Baldwin Park) and other Members of the Budget Sub Committee on Health and Human Services are asking the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to fix an error they created while improperly procuring a contract bid.  The Department has refused to provide a timely fix.
