New Jersey lawmaker: Fill Medicaid vacancy
Philadelphia Inquirer, April 3, 2008
New Jersey Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts Jr. says Gov. Jon Corzine must immediately name a special inspector to oversee health programs for the poor. The Legislature approved a Medicaid inspector general and Corzine signed the position into law in March of 2007, but more than a year has passed without him filling the job. Two state audits have now found numerous examples of waste in Medicaid and another health program for the poor.
