Greater St. Louis, Inc. Statement on Missouri Senate Passage of Legislation Fully Funding Medicaid
Greater St. Louis, Inc. CEO Jason Hall today applauded the Missouri Senate’s passage of HB 3014 (Rep. Smith), the supplemental budget that fully funds the state’s Medicaid program and other budget items:
“Medicaid expansion is a pro-growth public policy that supports better health outcomes, creates jobs, and promotes racial equity. Greater St. Louis, Inc. is pleased the Missouri House and Senate have approved the supplemental budget needed to fully fund Medicaid for the rest of the fiscal year and we look forward to Governor Parson signing the bill as soon as possible.
“Thanks to leaders in the House and Senate, more Missourians can access health care and the state can reap the economic benefits of Medicaid expansion.”
Greater St. Louis, Inc. led the statewide coalition of chambers of commerce and economic development groups last year that joined the legal effort to expand Medicaid.
