Senator: Put health plan to vote again

Posted: July 10, 2013 at 12:06 a.m.

Sen. Bryan King, R-Green Forest, said Gov. Mike Beebe should recall legislators for a special legislative session to overturn a 2013 law that, if approved by the federal government, would allow federal Medicaid funds to be used to pay for private health insurance for 250,000 poor Arkansans.

Because part of the federal health-care law has been delayed, the state should rescind its approval for 250,000 poor Arkansans to receive federally funded private health insurance, a state senator said Tuesday.
