A bill that Republicans claim would end work requirements for the state’s 50,000 Medicaid Expansion recipients passed the Senate 14-10 Thursday with all of the Democrats voting in favor.
The measure, which adds the allowance of state general fund revenues for the Granite Advantage health-care program, will go to the House of Representatives for consideration, while a federal lawsuit plays out on the subject. It is possible that Gov. Chis Sununu will veto the measure if it gets to his desk.
“The work requirements are over,” said Sen. Jeb Bradley R-Wolfeboro, who called it a backdoor way of achieving what a federal lawsuit is trying to achieve.
