2/29/16 Group Watch: Senate Passes General Fund Budget

Thursday night, after much debate, the Senate┬ápassed a $1.8 billion General Fund Budget on a 23 to 10 vote. If enacted, it provides level funding for most state agencies, but it prohibits Medicaid from moving to managed care. With plenty of time in the session left, some believe this opens the door for a needed discussion of┬áMedicaid’s part in Alabama health care.
