Democratic leaders of the Kentucky House met for about an hour with Governor Steve Beshear this morning to discuss Medicaid. House Speaker Greg Stumbo says the leaders showed the governor their bipartisan plan for balancing the Medicaid budget.
“I think I’m safe in saying that he likes his plan better than he liked ours. But he didn’t totally reject it, so it was a positive meeting,” he says.

Stumbo’s not revealing details of the plan, on which he and House Minority Leader Jeffrey Hoover have been working. Stumbo says the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee may vote on the plan today, and it possibly could get a House floor vote this evening. This is day six of the special session on Medicaid.
