AARP Michigan State Director Jacqueline Morrison made this statement today on the substitute for House Bill 4174, the Medicaid expansion legislation:

 “We very much appreciate the significant progress that has been made on the Medicaid expansion bill. After an initial review, AARP supports the legislation in concept. We will watch closely as the bill moves through the process and look forward to working with the Legislature to ensure that 470,000 Michiganians without health insurance get the quality coverage they need.”

The House may begin moving the bill as soon as today: http://www.mlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/06/medicaid_expansion_michigan_2.html
