SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Facing a March 13 deadline to move bills out of Senate committees, lawmakers worked during the week ending March 14 to advance their measures to the Senate floor for further debate, said State Senator Pamela Althoff (R- Crystal Lake). Meanwhile, several Senate Republican lawmakers unveiled an ambitious Medicaid reform package.


The Medicaid reform initiative advances a series of reforms targeting the state’s rapidly expanding and increasingly burdensome Medicaid obligations. If signed into law, the measures would reduce the growing backlog of $1.7 billion in unpaid bills to health care providers and further improve the level of service those patients receive.
