LANSING–Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville (R-Monroe) issued the following statement regarding Medicaid legislation:
“The debate and discussion regarding reforming Medicaid in Michigan is not over. Members of my caucus have been working hard to improve upon something that was hoisted upon us by a federal government that had very little consideration for the impact of this program on the taxpayers of Michigan. We owe it to our neighbors and communities to thoroughly review this issue and consider alternatives to the current proposal.
The legislation will be referred to committee and a legislative workgroup will spend the summer reviewing the current legislation and proposals offered by my colleagues that seek to improve upon the tremendous work that has already been done. I look forward to working with the Governor, the House and my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to present a plan for a healthier Michigan.”
