Show Your Support for Medicaid Expansion!
Will you take 5 minutes to send one email and make four calls to make sure the Ohio House keeps Medicaid expansion in the state budget (see the instructions below)?
Legislators are currently on spring break. The House Finance committee will soon vote the budget out of committee and decide whether or not to keep Medicaid expansion in the budget bill.
That means these are our last opportunities to make a difference!
Our representatives need to hear from constituents from all across Ohio that we support Medicaid expansion!
Please follow the instructions below to send one email and make four calls to make sure the Ohio House supports extending Medicaid to 275,000 Ohioans.
Instructions for the Day of Action
