SJR 34 would shut the door on Medicaid expansion.
We need you to act now. Twenty-one state senators have proposed a resolution opposing Medicaid expansion. Senate Joint Resolution 34 slams the door on health coverage for 185,000 hard-working Alabamians.
The coverage gap is withholding health care from too many Alabama workers and their families. It also puts hospitals across the state at financial risk. Urge your senator to oppose SJR 34 if it comes to the Senate floor.
Here’s the list of SJR 34 cosponsors: Senators Pittman, Albritton, Melson, Bussman, Scofield, Allen, Sanford, Holtzclaw, Glover, Brewbaker, Waggoner, Shelnutt, Hightower, Stutts, Ward, McClendon, Livingston, Reed, Whatley, Orr and Williams
