St. Louis, Mo. – President Bush Wednesday signed into law a tax cut package that also contains aid for the states.
That package should translate into about $186 million earmarked for Missouri's Medicaid program.
Attorney Joel Ferber with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri says that funding is matching money that's based on Missouri's Medicaid spending in the past. But he says the current budget proposal cuts 13,000 adults from Medicaid.
Washington, DC – Illinois Congressman Jerry Costello says he and other elected Illinois officials are working on a plan to help Scott Air Force Base, by asking the Pentagon to consider leasing or buying C-40 aircraft from Boeing to replace ten C-9s at Scott Air Force Base slated for retirement.
