LANSING (WKZO) -- Three Medicaid reform bills will be in front of the state Senate later this month.

The bills, including Governor Rick Snyder's proposal which has already been passed by the House, were approved by a Senate committee Wednesday.  One bill is a substitute crafted by a group of Senate Republicans who didn't like the House-passed bill.

Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer expressed disappointment that a vote won't happen until later this month, saying there's no need to wait until August 27th.
