Become Educated on Initiative 427: Medicaid Expansion
The November 6th General Election is fast approaching, and we as a Chamber want to remind our voting citizens the importance of being educated on all issues on the ballot.
Our Secretary of State John Gale is holding public hearings on Medicaid Expansion in each of the three congressional districts. The hearings will provide a chance for those attending to hear both sides of petition proposals.
Congressional District 2: 6 p.m. Oct. 11, in the boardroom of the Omaha Public Schools’ Teacher Administrative Center, 3215 Cuming St., Omaha.
Congressional District 1: 6 p.m. October 16, State Capitol, Hearing Room 1525, 1445 K St., Lincoln.
Congressional District 3: 6 p.m. Oct. 30, College Park of Grand Island Theater Room, 3180 W. Highway 34, Grand Island.
Those supporting Initiative 427 will be invited to speak first, followed by those opposing the measure. All three hearings will be moderated by Gale. Members of the public are welcome to testify or just attend and listen.
