Read the letter. Letter to Senators Wyden-Merkley-June 13 2017
Excerpt: “Medicaid helps families stay together and enriches the lives of people with disabilities by allowing their greater connection, community, and purpose.”
Senate leaders are expected to bring the bill to the Senate floor the week of June 26 and schedule a vote just a few days later — without any hearings, and without giving most members any opportunity to review the legislation or make amendments.
