CLEVELAND (AP) - Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) says he's optimistic ahead of a legislative panel vote on whether the state will extend Medicaid coverage to more Ohioans under the federal health care law.
The Republican made the comments Friday at the Cleveland Clinic, using the well-known hospital to make a final public push for Medicaid expansion. He was joined by advocates who support expansion.
The seven-member state Controlling Board is scheduled to vote Monday on Kasich's request to authorize spending federal money on the newly eligible Medicaid enrollees in the state.
The panel includes two Democrats and a Kasich appointee who are expected to favor the request. That leaves the governor in search of a single vote among his fellow Republicans.
The GOP-controlled Legislature so far has resisted Medicaid expansion.
