The Iowa Senate is moving ahead with plans to roadblock Governor Branstad's move to privitized Medicaid in Iowa. On Thursday members debated a bill to terminate contracts with the companies selected to manage Iowa's Medicaid plan.
Senate File 2125 was approved by the Senate 29-19 on Thursday morning. The chamber won't be back in session until next week.
The bill has little chance of gaining approval in the Iowa House because it is controled by Republicans. Governor Barnstad is also Republican.
