WASHINGTON— 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.”
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He serves as the Chairman of the House Committee on the Budget and is a member of the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees.
