|Subject:||Co-sponsor memo #1 – Medicaid Expansion|
|In the near future I will be reintroducing SB 12 of the 2013-14 session, which would expand Commonwealth’s Medicaid program pursuant to the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.
Governor-elect Wolf has stated that he intends to expand Medicaid upon being sworn into office in January, 2015. My legislation would buttress the Governor-elect’s stated intention by statutorily recognizing that expanding Medicaid is the established public policy of this Commonwealth.
I ask you to join me in cosponsoring this legislation
Introduced as SB12
