Governor to sign Medicaid expansion bill today

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Governor Snyder is scheduled to sign the Medicaid expansion bill today now that he is back from his trade trip to Asia.  The measure is designed to make affordable healthcare available to 400,000 to 500,000 low income workers, as a part of the Obamacare program.  

While the Governor has muted his criticism of the State Senate for not giving it immediate effect, he has pointed out it will cost the state hundreds of millions and delay healthcare coverage for all those Michiganders. Instead of taking effect in January, the additional coverage won’t become available until March 2014.
