Speaker Philip Gunn Statement on Passage of Medicaid Funding Bill
House Bill 2 (HB2), the Medicaid
Appropriations Bill, passed the House floor by a vote of 115-1. It provides
$840 million in state supported funds.
"I commend House members for
their prudent work today on funding and reauthorizing the Division of
Medicaid," said Speaker of the House Philip Gunn. "We hope our counterparts in
the Senate pass these clean bills so we can continue medical coverage for those
currently on the Medicaid program."
