Statement from NH Sen. Deputy Democratic Leader Donna Soucy on NH Senate passage of Medicaid expansi


Concord, N.H. - Tonight, the New Hampshire Senate voted 17-7 in favor of SB 313, a bill to reauthorize New Hampshire's Medicaid expansion program. Seven Senators, all Republicans, voted against this bipartisan proposal, including Senator Bob Guida, Senator Harold French, Senator Gary Daniels, Senator Kevin Avard, Senator Sharon, Senator Regina Birdsell & Senator Andy Sanborn. Medicaid expansion provides health insurance to more than 50,000 Granite Staters, while more than 20,000 have accessed Substance Use Disorder treatment services under the program. New Hampshire Senate Deputy Democratic Leader Donna Soucy issued the following statement: "While we still have concerns about the toughest hourly work requirement in the country, we laid out one primary goal at the outset of this process: to ensure nobody who has coverage loses it under reauthorization of this immensely important program. We've been promised by Republican leadership that this reauthorization fulfills that promise. I hope the New Hampshire House continues to work to address our remaining concerns about providing better pathways to work to put opportunity over exemptions."
