A Lincoln state lawmaker has introduced a bill to expand Nebraska's Medicaid system.
Senator Adam Morfield says his bill will bring an additional $775 million dollars in federal money back to Nebraska, improve efficiency in the Medicaid system, an ensure a smooth transition to the Republican healthcare plan once Congress replaces the Affordable Care Act.
Morfield says the bill would make health care affordable to nearly 100,000 uninsured Nebraskans.
