Medicaid, budget talk brings tension to General Assembly special session

The first steps on a path to end Virginia’s budget impasse started with procedural niceties and a long closed-door meeting of Senate Republicansupset by one senior colleague’s break with the caucus stand against Medicaid expansion... Meanwhile, Speaker of the House Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, said the House’s budget bill will likely have stronger work requirements for those who want to become eligible for Medicaid expansion. He would not specify how the requirements would be stronger, and said that lawmakers will “work through that” in a House Appropriations Committee meeting on Friday.
Del. Marcia “Cia” Price, D-Newport News, said she, too, had no idea until she saw a tweet from a Daily Press reporter. She was optimistic about passing a House budget next week, but she will “definitely have questions” about what stricter work requirements mean. Price, too, would not elaborate on what kind of requirement would be too strong for her.
“I think it’s premature to draw any lines in the sand,” Price said. “Especially, there may be tougher requirements on one population but several carve-outs for those who physically can’t work or caretakers and things. I’d be really interested in having the conversation.” (Click for full article)

I'm Headed Back to Richmond

During our Legislative Session earlier this year, we did not complete our work before we adjourned. We were not able to pass a budget because the House and Senate versions were so different. What was the main difference? Medicaid Expansion. I supported the House Budget bills because with Medicaid Expansion, about 13,000 citizens in Hampton and Newport News and about 400,000 across the Commonwealth could get life-saving healthcare coverage. Not to mention, without expanding Medicaid, YOUR hard earned tax dollars are being sent back to the Federal government to the tune of about $5M per day.

It's the right thing to do. Read more below on the upcoming sessions and what you can do.

To Help Strapped Borrowers, States Turn to Student Loan Ombudsmen

Marcia “Cia” Price is 37 years old and has more than $90,000 in outstanding student loan debt — more than what she originally owed. Like many indebted former students, Price has had her share of frustrations in trying to navigate the loan repayment thicket, especially during earlier days when she didn’t make a lot of money and needed help restructuring her loan.
She’s not alone. The U.S. government says a combined 43 million people owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loans. About 4.6 million people were in default at the end of last year.
But Price is unusual in one respect: As a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, she’s in a position to help.
