Do you support any legislation that may come before the 2021 session of the Legislature that could result in raising revenue? Please explain.

What is your position on “Medicaid expansion” that allows low-income adults to be eligible for healthcare coverage with 90% funding from the Federal government and 10% funding from the State?

Medicaid Expansion
The current budget shortfall cannot be managed by only cutting expenditures. It is essential to improve revenue streams withn the most likely option being increased sales tax. Personally, I am currently working on draft for bills to implement either statewide or county option Real Extate Transfer taxes as well as a bill to tax unearned income (e.g. dividends, interest, capital gains)
I have supported Medicaid Expansion consistently since I joined the Legislature, and was the prime sponsor of a Medicad Expansion bill in 2018. I will continue to work for its passage by the Legislature.
