Gov. Snyder to sign Medicaid expansion legislation

Gov. Snyder to sign Medicaid expansion legislation story image
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder is set to sign legislation that would make more low-income adults eligible for health insurance through the federal health care law.
   
The state House approved the much-debated Medicaid expansion bill on a bipartisan 75-32 vote the day after Labor Day.
   
The signing ceremony is scheduled for Monday at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn.
   
Medicaid expansion is part of a strategy to ensure that nearly all Americans have health insurance under the 2010 Affordable Care Act. It was designed to cover the neediest uninsured people but became optional for states because of a Supreme Court decision.
   
Many GOP-led states opposed to "Obamacare" have declined the expansion.
   
But it was a major priority for Snyder, who's a Republican in his first term as Michigan's chief executive.
