LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Lawmakers who want to close Nebraska's health care coverage gap are taking a new approach after two previous attempts to expand Medicaid failed.
Senator Kathy Campbell presented her Medicaid "redesign" bill to a committee Wednesday.
It would require the state to apply for a federal waiver to develop its own Medicaid plan, as other states have done. Residents who fall into the coverage gap would be pulled into the current Medicaid program until the federal waiver is approved.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The last election gave Republicans an even larger majority in Nebraska's nonpartisan Legislature, and now some conservatives are seeking to end the secret votes that let lawmakers break from their party when choosing legislative leaders.
