MO House committee approves GOP-backed Medicaid alternative

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, April 5, 2013

The decision on whether to expand Missouri's health care program for the poor has been one of the most debated topics of the session. Democrat-backed expansion efforts have swiftly been killed this session, but the House Government Oversight Committee gave bipartisan support Wednesday evening to a reform-based bill that would expand coverage in Missouri — but not to the level outlined in the federal health care law.
