PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan is heading to Plymouth to urge state senators to reach what she calls a "constructive compromise" on expanding Medicaid to an estimated 49,000 poor adults in New Hampshire.
The issue is up for a vote in the Legislature on Thursday. Negotiations are continuing to find a compromise between House and Senate bills, which differ in how quickly the state would shift people from a state managed care program to private insurance through the federal insurance marketplace.
Hassan will be joined by House Speaker Terie Norelli and others 10 a.m. Monday at a news conference at the Whole Village Family Resources Center in Plymouth.
