Senate President Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore made it clear on day one of the 2015 legislative session that they were not in favor of Medicaid expansion this year.
Sen. Berger told reporters his position has not changed.
“There is in my view no good case that can be made that Medicaid expansion is the right thing for us to do in North Carolina.”
Newly-elected House Speaker Tim Moore said he’s concerned that federal funding could vanish in a few years, leaving the state in the lurch.
“I just don’t see that as a good long-term play for us to make,” Moore told reporters.
