Governor Hopes for Medicaid Decision by Summer

Gov. Bill Lee says he’s hopeful the federal government will approve lump sum funding for the state's Medicaid program by this summer, the Tennessean reports. But he confirmed that officials have not given him a date yet. Tennessee filed a $7.9 billion block grant proposal with federal officials in November. If approved, state lawmakers would then have to vote on the final product. Lee said he is open to calling a special session of the legislature if one is needed.
