Tenn. Senate Panel Rejects Medicaid Expansion Plan
On Wednesday, a Tennessee Senate panel on Wednesday rejected Gov. Bill Haslam's (R) alternative Medicaid expansion plan, leaving the proposal with "little chance" of passing during the state's legislative session. Meanwhile, state House Speaker Beth Harwell (R) said the plan likely would not have enough votes to pass in the state House.
