Wisconsin Lawmakers Gavel In and Out of Session
Wisconsin lawmakers convened the special session called by Gov. Tony Evers on May 25 for less than a minute and adjourned without considering the governor’s plan.
Evers called the special session to consider the expansion of BadgerCare, the Wisconsin Medicaid system, and invest the $1 billion in cost savings realized under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into Wisconsin’s economic recovery.
As of today, 38 states have approved Medicaid expansion to become eligible for the additional federal funding.
