A Senate-passed bill to substantially weaken the work requirement in New Hampshire’s expanded Medicaid program cleared the House in a 207-143 party line vote on Wednesday, without a single Republican in support.

The bill, SB 290, faces a likely veto from Gov. Chris Sununu, and did not pass in either chamber with veto-proof majorities.

Among other things, it would end the work requirement entirely if it resulted in more than 500 people losing their benefits out of 50,000 in the expanded version of the federally funded health insurance program for low-income households.
