Crawford Approves of Work Requirements for Arkansas’s Medicaid Program

Washington, D.C. – Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and John Boozman (R-Arkansas), and Congressmen Rick Crawford (AR-01), French Hill (AR-02), Steve Womack (AR-03), and Bruce Westerman (AR-04) today released the following statement applauding CMS’s approval of work requirements for Arkansas’s Medicaid program:

“Encouraging people who can work to find employment is a common-sense policy with a track record of success. It not only focuses Medicaid dollars on those who need it most; it also helps people get back into the workforce and move up the income ladder. We’re glad to see Governor Hutchinson pursue a reform for which we’ve long advocated, and we applaud the Trump administration for approving our state’s new policy.”
