Governor Kasich's Statement on the House Budget

 

Medicaid Reform: "It's clear that support isn't there right now among House Republicans to extend Medicaid coverage, but it's the right decision for Ohio.  Not doing so will hurt our economy, make Obamacare's impacts worse and hurt vulnerable Ohioans who need care.  The House's proposed funds for mental illness and addiction addresses part of the problem but it's not enough.  Ohio's support for this needed change is diverse and broad and the governor will see this through to get it done."
