Medicaid expansion stalls in Michigan Senate

LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation to expand Medicaid in Michigan under the Affordable Care Act is stalled for the time being in the state Senate.  A vote could come after Republicans and Democrats discussed the legislation for hours in separate caucus meetings Tuesday.

MIRS News reports there might be as many as 20 votes for the bill, assuming all 12 Democrats decide to vote for it.  Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville has said he wants at least 13 GOP votes, which is half of the Republicans in the Senate.

The House passed the bill last week.
