LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder is in Houghton to push his plan for Medicaid expansion with the Healthy Michigan legislation.

The governor is meeting with small business owners in the Upper Peninsula at GS Engineering.  Snyder says the plan would cover nearly a half-million low-income Michigan residents currently without insurance and would prevent the state from paying up to 81-million-dollars a year in federal penalties.

The House passed the bill last month, while the Senate continues to study it and alternatives.
