JEFFERSON CITY — A proposed resolution with the potential to reverse Missouri’s Medicaid expansion is headed to the Senate for debate.

HJR 117 would amend the state’s constitution to make eligibility for working-age adults on Medicaid in Missouri subject to whether the General Assembly makes an appropriation each fiscal year. The resolution has the potential to gut Missouri’s Medicaid expansion, approved by voters via ballot initiative in 2020.
