Despite the great leadership of our chief sponsor, Rep Christine Barber, and the support of 43 co-sponsors, the amendment (#1119) to preserve the pre-April 1st Health Safety Net rules, and to fund the program with an additional $15 million was not included in the consolidated amendment for Health and Human Services on Tuesday evening.
This means we will have to try to get the amendment adopted in the Senate budget, and then favorably dealt with in the conference committee. We'll keep plugging.
I've attached the House fact sheet so that you can thank your representative if he/she is listed as a co-sponsor.
Thank you for your continued advocacy.
