HB: 334 – Medicaid Budget Reform- Rejecting Governor Amendments

Bill Status: Vetoed by the Governor

This vote was on whether to reject Governor Bullock’s amendatory veto. Governor Bullock amended the legislation that restricts Medicaid revenue for Medicaid appropriations. The Governor amended the bill to allow Medicaid revenue to be used for any DPHHS functions, not solely Medicaid. AFP-MT opposed this bill, as revenue raised for Medicaid is specifically meant for Medicaid and state government should honor that promise.
