Lawmakers Ponder How To Use $450M For Medicaid Programs

Beacon Hill lawmakers are closer to figuring out exactly how to use $450 million in new federal funding for medicaid programs.

"We've made great progress and hopefully relatively soon with the governor's office and the Republicans, we'll be able to come up with some type of compromise we can put forward in an informal session," said House Speaker Robert DeLeo.

The legislature is meeting in an informal session on Beacon Hill, which means one single negative vote can block any proposal for using the money.
