Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: December 11, 2014 09:36 AM
From: Senator Vincent J. Hughes
To: All Senate members
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
