Legislative Rift: Mississippi Lawmakers Divided Over Novel Approach to Medicaid Expansion

According to Clarionledger, In Mississippi, there’s a big argument going on in the Legislature about expanding Medicaid. Speaker proposes Jason White has a new idea to help fix this. He wants to ask the people of Mississippi to vote on it. This would be different from how laws usually get made and it hasn’t happened since 2020 when they changed the state flag.
