Looney Statement on Medicaid Funding

"Democrats are considering a number of issues for a potential September special session. We appreciate the Republicans' new interest in funding Medicaid for nursing homes after failing to offer a budget during the 2019 session. Offering an alternative budget would have provided them with an opportunity to forthrightly state their spending priorities in comparison with the adopted budget. Instead they chose to publicly commit to no alternative appropriations while waiting in the weeds to selectively snipe at elements of the budget until the next election. We do remain open to good faith discussions on this and other issues."
