109th Dist. State Rep. John Kivela (D-Marquette)
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Representative John Kivela joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to chat about the vote in the state senate this week that passed Medicaid expansion in the state.
The Marquette Democrat praised Republican Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba for voting for the measure after getting an amendment approved that will benefit the Upper Peninsula in the long run.
Kivela also said the measure is expected to be signed into law by Governor Snyder after further review and concurrence by the House.
According to Kivela, the biggest challenge after the measure becomes law is getting those Michigan residents who are impacted by this legislation to actually sign up.
