    Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, presents the Assembly’s budget proposal in his office at the state Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Wednesday. California Assembly Democrats say they want to use the windfall from a growing economy to expand a tax credit for the working poor and extend health coverage to immigrants living in the country illegally.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California, flush with cash from an expanding economy, would eventually spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to immigrants living in the state illegally under a proposal announced Wednesday by Democratic lawmakers.
