Advocates push for children's Medicaid expansion in Texas Legislature

AP/Dallas Morning News, May 13, 2009

Several Texas lawmakers made a last-ditch effort to heat up interest in legislation to extend children's Medicaid coverage from a six-month enrollment period to 12 months. The Legislature wraps up its session June 1, and a May 14 deadline in the House for passage of certain bills will take many proposals out of the running. Supporters of the Medicaid expansion called for the House Calendars Committee to place the 12-month Medicaid bill near the front of the remaining batch of bills to be considered.
