Statehouse Rally Today Seeks Medicaid Expansion

Supporters of expanding Medicaid are scheduled to hold a rally at the Statehouse this afternoon. Republican Governor John Kasich plans to appear.

Kasich proposed extending Medicaid coverage to more low-income Ohioans, but majority Republicans in the legislature dropped the plan from the state budget bill. Roughly 366 thousand Ohioans would be eligible for coverage beginning in 2014 if the state expands Medicaid.
