NOBLE urges action on State budget issues

(Plain Press, September 2017)     Northern Ohioans for Budget Legislation Equality (NOBLE) urges Ohioans to call state officials to tell them to keep Medicaid expansion in place in Ohio, and to protect transit agencies and county governments from major cuts in revenue.

Medicaid Expansion:  Your action is urgently needed TODAY! The Fight for Medicaid Expansion is not over! We need your help to ensure that individuals will continue to have access to affordable health care.

All calls need to be made by September 6th to ensure that our voices are heard BEFORE their vote on these issues later that afternoon.

NOBLE needs you to contact the following Representatives and Senators with these messages:

House Action: Senate President Larry Obhof wants the House to end Medicaid Expansion enrollment effective July 1, 2018. Those that are currently on the program and lose coverage due to finding employment would not be able to reapply after July 1, 2018. This would quickly end health coverage for tens of thousands of Ohioans.

We urge you to contact the following Representatives and tell them: Do not override the Governor’s veto of the Medicaid Freeze.

Contact: Representative Mike Duffey, 614-644-6030; Representative Nathan Manning, 614-644-5076; Representative Jeff Rezabek, 614-466-2960 ; Representative Gary Scherer, 614-644-7928 .

  Senate Action: 1. Don’t override the veto of the Healthy Ohio Plan. 2. Don’t override the veto of the freeze on Medicaid Expansion. 3. We hope that a good solution is reached allowing transit agencies and Counties to continue getting the $200 million a year they would lose from the Managed Care Organization tax.  If a solution can not be reached, we ask you to override the veto.

Contact: Senator Matt Dolan, 614-466-8056 ; Senator Frank LaRose, 614-466-4823 ; Senator Peggy Lehner, 614-466-4538 ; Senator John Eklund, 614-644-7718 .
