A proposed change might be the starting point for ending the battle over Medicaid expansion. Republican State Senator Emmett Hanger (pictured) wants to alter how the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission votes. Under current law, the commission must vote to expand Medicaid before it gets final approval. Hanger is proposing the state go ahead and expand Medicaid unless a simple majority of lawmakers who sit on the commission votes against it. House Republicans say they’ll consider the idea. Governor McAuliffe says it looks encouraging. The Medicaid debate has delayed passage of a state budget.
