Support Medicaid Redesign that will allow 50,000+ to purchase affordable health insurance
On Tuesday, March 10, the Health and Human Services Committee voted 5-2 to advance LB 472–Medicaid Redesign for consideration by the whole Unicameral. This will once again be a challenging debate and Nebraskans need their faith leaders to weigh in on this important issue.
As of March 12, over 150 Nebraska clergy, women religious and leaders of faith based organizations have signed a Faith Leaders letter asking the Unicameral to support LB 472–Medicaid Redesign Act. OTOC clergy leaders will convene a press conference on Tuesday, March 17 at 12:30 p.m. in the Capitol Rotunda to present the names of these clergy leaders to members of the Unicameral.
