Medicaid Expansion Facts
Petition drives are underway to get Medicaid expansion on the November 2020 ballot. For this to happen, more than 172,000 signatures are needed from registered Missouri voters. Proponents for expansion contend it would provide health insurance for more than 200,000 uninsured Missourians.
Low participation in the 2020 Census could negatively impact Missouri. The 2010 Census resulted in the loss of one congressional seat and hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding. It’s estimated for every child and adult not counted, Missouri loses $1,300. This is especially critical to rural Missouri.
