Michael Antonovich wants support from the Board of Supervisors on a new Medicaid bill that would allow health benefits for the elderly when they move.   

Antonovich, Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor, will ask the Board of Supervisors Tuesday to draft and sign a letter supporting the Community Choice Act, which is weaving its way through Congress.

If passed, the Community Choice Act would establish nationwide coverage for seniors, allowing them access to long-term patient care wherever the senior citizen chooses to live.

The Board of Supervisors will also look at possible ban on smoking at county-run parks based on a report submitted to the Board of Supervisors by the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health in April.

Third District Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky will ask the Parks and Health departments and the Los Angeles County Counsel to draft a smoke-free park ordinance within 90 days.

The Board of Supervisors meets at Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at 500 West Temple Street in Los Angeles.
