109th District State Rep John Kivela Weighs In On Medicaid Expansion In Michigan
109th District State House Representative John Kivela.
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 109th District State Representative John Kivela says he is supporting the call from Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for the State Senate to pass a measure expanding Medicaid coverage in the state.
Appearing on The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today, Representative Kivela said he feels Snyder is absolutely correct in pushing the State Senate to take up the issue.
The Marquette Democrat says the pressure from the Governor to get the House-approved measure passed in the Senate sooner than later is appropriate because time is of the essence in getting all of the state residents signed up and registered for the coverage will be a lengthy process.
Kivela says the plan passed in the State House by a bipartisan majority and the Senate is not operating in the best interests of the state by dragging it’s feet on a final vote on the matter.
