California State Assemblyman Ash Kalra — the lone Indian American in the Legislature — has authored two bills that would extend health care coverage to all residents of the state, including an estimated 700,000 undocumented people.

If the bills pass through both the state Assembly and the state Senate, California would be the first state in the nation to extend health care coverage to its undocumented residents.
