Thursday night, you can learn more about a proposal to expand Medicaid in Nebraska. 

The state is holding a public hearing at the OPS Tac Building near 30th and Cuming. Voters will decide on the measure in the next month's election.

The proposal would help ensure health insurance coverage for about 90,000 low income Nebraskans who earn too much to qualify for regular Medicaid but too little to get help under the Affordable Care Act. 

The meeting begins at 6 p.m.
