Idaho Lawmakers Discuss Medicaid Expansion Ballot Initiative

Jul 19, 2018

After Medicaid expansion failed to pass the Idaho legislature during the last session, the grassroots organization Reclaim Idaho gathered and submitted 56,192 signatures from Idahoans - enough to get the issue on the ballot as a voter initiative in the Novemeber election.

We talk with state lawmakers about the possible passage of this expansion, how it may help the state's 62,000 uninsured residents and the wider impact on the state's economy.
