County leaders call on state lawmakers and the Governor to reject Medicaid proposal and protect local taxpayers.
With the additional revenues that were announced today in the consensus revenue forecast, county leaders call on state lawmakers and the Governor to reject a Medicaid proposal that would take at least $150 million from local taxpayers and effectively dissolve the caps on local Medicaid costs. These caps have helped stabilized property taxes and protected local services that families rely on.
Instead of making local taxpayers pay for new Medicaid costs, State leaders should let the Medicaid Redesign Team II do its work and make cost containment reforms that don't punish local taxpayers.
