Michigan House committee passes Medicaid expansion

LANSING (WKZO) -- The state House could vote Thursday on legislation to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act to hundreds of thousands of Michigan residents.

The bill would open up Medicaid to people making between 100 and 133-percent of the federal poverty level.  A committee approved the bill by a 9-5 vote, with five Republicans voting no.

Governor Snyder wants the expansion passed, and has said he will bring in Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to lobby lawmakers if needed.
