OH says board acted within law in Medicaid case

SFGate.com / Associated Press, November 26, 2013
An Ohio legislative panel acted consistently with state law and standard practice when it approved a request to fund an expansion of the Medicaid program last month, state attorneys argued in a court filing Monday. Two anti-abortion groups and six Republican state representatives are suing the state Controlling Board and Ohio's Department of Medicaid over the decision that bypassed the General Assembly. They want the Ohio Supreme Court to order the board to declare its decision as void and stop Medicaid officials from using the board's approval to move forward with covering thousands more people under the federal-state health program.
