The South Dakota legislature wrapped up the main run of the 2014 session last week without taking action on Medicaid expansion. The federal government has said it will pay most of the costs of the expansion for the next several years.

House Minority Leader Bernie Hunhoff of Yankton says expansion will happen eventually…

 

Hunhoff says they did have some helpful discussion about expansion in the last couple of weeks of the session…

 

Hunhoff says he doesn’t think the issue will come up again on the final day of the session on March 31st.
