Legislation designed to reduce the number of people on Medicaid is close to dead.
Missy Shelton reports.
Senate Democratic Floor Leader Ken Jacob told Republican Senator John Loudon he doesn't want the bill to come to a vote.
Earlier this year, the House approved a version of the bill that would've saved money by making fewer people eligible for Medicaid...The Senate gutted the bill.
Supporters of the senate's version had hoped to save money by requiring an annual review to determine if any ineligible people are on Medicaid and getting those people out of the program.
Though no bill is actually dead until the clock strikes 5 P-M on May 14th, supporters say the proposal is in serious trouble.
