House Poised To Vote On Medicaid Regs Moratorium

The House is poised to vote today on a bill to put a one-year moratorium on seven Medicaid regulations that states say would cripple their budgets.

The measure will be voted on under suspension of the House rules, which requires a two-thirds majority and generally is reserved for noncontroversial bills.


The administration has threatened a veto even though it has the support of House Republicans, including Energy and Commerce ranking member Joe Barton, who brokered a compromise with Energy and Commerce Chairman John Dingell.

Barton said last week that there are enough votes in both the House and Senate to override the president’s veto.
