IMPORTANT NOTE: Before we get to our update on what happened in Pierre, this week, we want you to be watching for another email coming from us soon on the House State Affairs Committee Hearing on SJR501. As a reminder, this is the resolution that would place a measure on the November ballot related to work reporting requirements for some individuals eligible under Medicaid expansion. When you see that action alert email, please take a moment to send a message to committee members urging them to respect the will of the voters who passed Medicaid expansion and vote NO on SJR 501.
