Since 2012, members of the House and Senate majorities have refused to take action on Medicaid expansion. By refusing to allow a vote, they have effectively shielded their true beliefs.
Now, many of these same lawmakers want to prevent others from taking action as well. This week, the House passed House Bill 222, which would force the executive branch to do nothing as well.
The bill would allow the Legislature to prohibit the governor from accepting federal funds from a particular project.
