Virginia Governor Signs Budget, Medicaid Expansion

From USNews.com

By ALAN SUDERMAN, Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam signed a new state budget into law Thursday that will expand Medicaid to as many as 400,000 low-income adults, scoring a signature legislative win just months into office.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters from the steps of the state Capitol, Northam said the bipartisan compromise that led to Medicaid expansion's passage shows that Republicans and Democrats at the state level aren't politically polarized as they are nationally.

"Chaos and partisan warfare may dominate Washington, but here in Richmond we still work together to do the right thing for our people, not our political party," said Northam.

The Democratic governor won election last year on promises to expand Medicaid and reach across the aisle.

1. Remember last November when Northam knocked off Gillespie?

This is what GOTV does.
