Better Utah responds to passage of HB437 in Senate committee

Salt Lake City, Utah – The Alliance for a Better Utah responded this morning to House Majority Leader Jim Dunnigan’s (R – Taylorsville) bill, HB437, which was passed out of the Senate Health and Human Services Standing Committee by a 5-1 vote.
“This vote is the Utah Legislature telling tens of thousands of low-income Utahns once again that they don’t deserve access to health coverage,” said Chase Thomas, Better Utah’s policy and advocacy director. “As this bill now moves to the Senate floor, we remind our Senators that there is still a proposal for full Medicaid expansion in the Senate. We encourage the Senate to not let down their constituents as has continued to occur in the House of Representatives under the prodding of the Majority Leadership. It is time for us to finally live up to our moral duty to provide for all those who are continuing to suffer and die in our midst because of the Legislature’s failure to act.”
