LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Michigan could soon require certain people to work for their Medicaid benefits.
A bill passed a state Senate panel Wednesday.
Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof (R-West Olive) said the bill will likely get a full Senate vote next week. But it’s on Thursday’s agenda for a full floor vote.
“I think there’s a lot of merit there,” he said. “Folks that are able-bodied, I think this will help them become more self-sufficient. I think this is a good idea.”
