Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is commending the state Senate for its action on House Bill 4714, the Healthy Michigan plan. The plan expands Medicaid coverage to thousands of Michigan residents and the Governor had made passage of the measure a legislative priority.
Governor Snyder called in to The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss the passage of the measure in the Senate and what happens now with the legislation.
Snyder said the Senate should be commended for approving the Healthy Michigan plan, which will make a difference in the lives of nearly half-a-million Michiganders along with saving tax dollars and boosting our economy.
He added that Healthy Michigan reflects the values and needs of Michigan and its people. It will provide health care coverage to 470,000 residents, most working but earning less than $15,000 a year.
