  • Wisconsin Submits Request to Drug Test Medicaid Applicants AP by Scott Bauer—Wisconsin submitted a federal request Wednesday to become the first state in the country to drug test applicants for Medicaid health benefits. Republican Gov. Scott Walker expects President Donald Trump's administration to approve the waiver, which would also impose new requirements on able-bodied, childless adults receiving Medicaid in the state. The request comes as Walker, a one-time GOP presidential candidate, prepares for a likely re-election bid. The proposal has been chastised by advocates for the poor who say the plan won't result in more people becoming drug-free. They said it would simply be another hurdle for people in need.

Brian Sandoval could rewrite the way many of his constituents get health care, and establish a model that other states might eventually follow in the absence of congressional action to fix or replace Obamacare. He got the bill delivered to his desk Monday. He hasn't said what he will do with it. If he doesn't sign or veto it by June 16, it will automatically become law.
