MI Senate Still Does Not Vote on Medicaid Expansion

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A legislative committee plans to reconvene in two weeks to discuss Medicaid expansion after the Republican-led Michigan Senate adjourned without voting on a plan being pushed by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The Senate wasn't expected to vote on legislation Wednesday, but that didn't stop Democrats from showing up to demand a vote.
The gallery was packed with supporters of expanding Medicaid eligibility to low-income adults, and senators had to stand at the back of the chamber because carpet and desks are gone during a summer renovation. Democrats told stories of people needing health insurance.
Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville says his committee will meet every two weeks to get updates from a Senate workgroup asked to propose an alternative to Medicaid expansion legislation that passed the Republican-led House last month.
