Senate OKs Medicaid, DHS, Rehab Services consolidation

The state Senate after much debate passed a bill Tuesday to consolidate Medicaid and the Departments of Human Services and Rehabilitative Services.

But Senate Bill 2384 first was amended to ensure it will receive more debate and scrutiny before it could be passed into law by the House. It passed the Senate 37-14…

…A bill passed 61-60 in the House Tuesday to require Attorney General Jim Hood to get approval from an oversight committee to file any lawsuit on behalf of the state for more than $250,000.
