In large part due to significant public pushback, the Ohio House failed to override Governor Kasich’s veto of their Medicaid Expansion freeze. This is great news for Ohio, as estimates had the freeze causing 500,000 Ohioans to lose coverage. However, this issue is not settled, as Speaker Rosenberger has stated that the chamber may revisit overriding the veto in the future.
Gov. John Kasich signed the next state budget into law late Friday night but not before vetoing a proposed freeze on Medicaid expansion enrollment.
