A bill that would prohibit the implementation of planned cuts to the state Medicaid program is up for debate Monday afternoon in the Legislature's Appropriations committee.
Senator Jeremy Nordquist's bill would rescind the cuts proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
A press conference with health officials precedes the committee hearing.
Officials from the Nebraska Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Building Bright Futures group and the Nebraska
Association of Behavioral Health Organizations plan to speak in the
Capitol rotunda Monday morning.
They are expected to voice their concerns about the cuts and effects they may have on low income Nebraska families.
