Balanced Budget Amendment in House Fails
A vote on a balanced budget amendment in the House last week fell short of the needed two-thirds majority, and the Senate is unlikely to approve such a measure.

Other highlights include:
  • New York has proposed an emergency regulation to facilitate moving state Medicaid enrollees into managed care programs.
  • Wisconsin is moving forward with $225 million in Medicaid cuts that could result in about 65,000 Medicaid recipients leaving the program.
  • Democrats in Texas could gain a half-dozen seats in the House under an interim redistricting map that a federal court released last week.
