"Legislation expanding government health insurance coverage to hundreds of thousands of low-income adults in Michigan has moved forward in the state Senate.
A Senate committee on Wednesday approved a revised bill more than a month after the Republican-led chamber refused to vote at the request of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. The panel also approved two alternative plans backed by conservative senators.
It remains unclear how the full Senate will react when asked to vote on Medicaid expansion at the end of August."
