Final Members Named To Medicaid Expansion Committee

The final four members have been named to the state's Medicaid Expansion study committee.

On Wednesday Senate President Peter Bragdon announced his three choices.  They are Republican senators Nancy Stiles and Andy Sanborn.  He also named Charlie Arlinghaus, the President of the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy.  

Also on Wednesday, Senate minority leader Sylvia Larsen picked Democratic senator Peggy Gilmour.

Earlier this week, Governor Maggie Hassan, House Speaker Terie Norelli and House Minority Leader Gene Chandler made their choices.

The nine-member Medicaid Expansion Commission is expected to begin meeting Monday and has until October 15 to file a final report.
