  • On Wednesday Republicans in the NC House filed a bill to expand Medicaid in North Carolina. Democrats have long pushed to expand Medicaid in the state to close the “coverage gap,” and last year Republicans finally signaled interest in working with them to do so. The lead sponsor for the bill, Republican Rep. Donny Lambeth, originally wanted to include work requirements but worked with Governor Cooper’s Department of Commerce to craft job training incentives instead, since work requirements have consistently been found to be unconstitutional by the courts. Despite support in the House, the bill lacks changes that Senate Republicans have pushed for, which may signal stalled progress in negotiations.
