Posted on October 03, 2019

The MHA conducted numerous interviews with news outlets across the state and issued a media statement following Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s line-item vetoes cut healthcare funding.

On Monday, Sept. 30, Governor Whitmer issued 147 line-item vetoes to the state budget that began Oct. 1. The vetoes cut funding for critical access hospitals, rural hospitals, rural obstetrics and Medicaid reimbursement.  

Here are a few headlines from around the state:

The MHA will work diligently with the Whitmer administration and state Legislature to restore hospital funding that had bipartisan support. Members with questions regarding budget updates should contact Adam Carlson and any questions regarding media requests should contact John Karasinski at the MHA.
