Arkansas House Passes Measure To Extend Funding for Alternative Medicaid Expansion Plan
On Tuesday, the Arkansas House approved a budget measure that would maintain funding for the state's alternative Medicaid expansion plan. Gov. Mike Beebe (D) is expected to sign the measure. The House previously had failed to secure the 75 votes needed to approve the measure in four separate votes last month.
