  • John Kasich Scores Another Victory over GOP on Medicaid Expansion Cincinnati Enquirer by Jessie Balmert—Republican lawmakers failed to vote to override Gov. John Kasich's latest major veto, keeping Medicaid intact for 500,000 lower-income Ohioans and giving the governor another victory over his own party. After Kasich rejected lawmakers' proposal to halt future enrollment in Medicaid expansion, GOP lawmakers vigorously debated whether to override that veto. In the end, on Thursday, they didn't try. The Ohio House's 66-member GOP caucus lacked the 60 votes it needed to send Kasich a message on Obamacare's Medicaid expansion, lawmakers said. 

  • Kentucky Seeks Stricter Medicaid Work Requirements The Hill by Nathaniel Weixel—Kentucky is asking the Trump administration for permission to impose stricter work requirements for Medicaid beneficiaries than originally requested, according to an updated plan to overhaul the state's Medicaid program. Gov. Matt Bevin (R) this week submitted an amended plan that would eliminate the phase-in period for a controversial work requirement. The waiver would require able-bodied adults without dependents to work at least 20 hours a week to qualify for coverage.  The 20-hour requirement would start as soon as the waiver is approved. The initial proposal would have started the requirement at five hours a week, gradually increasing to 20 hours after a year.
