SD Panel: Voters Won't Rule On Medicaid Expansion

SD Panel: Voters Won't Rule On Medicaid Expansion
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota Committee has defeated a measure that would have asked voters whether the state should expand Medicaid in line with the federal Affordable Care Act.

The Senate State Affairs Committee voted 7-2 against the resolution.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard recently asked the federal government to allow for a partial expansion of Medicaid to people up to 100 percent of the federal poverty level.

The measure, sponsored by Democrats, would have asked voters in the next general election if they wanted to expand Medicaid to individuals up to 138 percent of poverty.

Senators who voted against the resolution say this is an issue to be determined by the Legislature and governor and putting the issue to the voters sets a bad precedent.
