KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in a lawsuit over whether Missouri legislators are required to fund a voter-approved measure to expand Medicaid in the state.
A court spokesperson said Tuesday that justices will hear oral arguments in the case at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 13.
A Cole County, Missouri District Court judge ruled last week that the voter-approved measure wasn’t constitutional because it didn’t include funding for the expansion.
That ruling prompted the three women to file an appeal to the Missouri Supreme Court, a decision that was widely expected by both parties.
