A Door County organization believes the state should accept more federal money for Medicaid. The process of constructing the biennial budget has begun in the state legislature this past week and it once again brings up the discussion around Medicaid expansion in Wisconsin. The Republican majority has already voted down Governor Evers’ inclusion of accepting federal funding to expand Medicaid. Mike Brodd of Door County Indivisible says this may not reflect the majority views within the state because of poor district lines. He says accepting the federal money for the expansion is the fair decision.
An estimated $1.6 million is available in federal funding for Medicaid.
