Over 110 Nebraska faith leaders signed a letter asking for the Nebraska Legislature to pass LB 887, the Wellness In Nebraska Act; Medicaid expansion.
Rev. Marshall Johnson is the spokesman for Omaha One Together Community who says those who signed the letter are from all faiths across the state and all support the bill that would help provide much needed medical care to the working poor.
Rev. Marshall says they are asking policymakers to provide access to life saving health care and make sure that no one in the state is left behind. The Nebraska Legislature plans to discuss LB 887 on Tuesday.
