800 Disabled Children In Texas Likely To Lose Therapy Services As Medicaid Cuts Begin

New Orleans Times-Picayune:
John Bel Edwards, Jeff Landry Come To Compromise On Abortion Lawsuits, Medicaid Fraud Funding

Gov. John Bel Edwards and Attorney General Jeff Landry are headed to court over LGBT workplace protections, but two of Louisiana’s top elected officials are trying to put a positive spin on their working relationship. Edwards and Landry announced Friday (Sept. 30) that they had resolved a couple of other high-profile disputes over how to deal with abortion lawsuits and efforts to root out Medicaid fraud. Edwards has agreed that Landry’s office needs more money to defend Louisiana’s abortion restrictions, which are being challenged as unconstitutional in court. The governor also said he would provide Landry with more resources to combat problems in the Medicaid program, which Edwards expanded to hundreds of thousands of new people. (O’Donoghue, 10/3)
