Assembly passes resolution opposing portions of Medicaid Waiver

The Assembly passed the Resolution designed to reject portions of the so-called Medicaid Waiver that would reduce income eligibility limits for parents in NJ FamilyCare.

Since Gov. Christie first eliminated the funding in last year’s budget, Democratic lawmakers have sought to restore $7.5 million to help roughly 131,000 women, children and families that they say are in danger of being denied access to basic health care.

Along party lines, the Assembly passed the measure by a 46-32 vote. The Senate had passed it earlier.

The resolution was sponsored by Assemblyman Lou Greenwald (D-6) of Voorhees.
