CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The chairman of a Wyoming legislative committee that that heard public testimony Wednesday in favor of a bill that would expand the Medicaid program said the committee won’t vote on the matter Wednesday and likely wouldn’t consider it Thursday, either.

Sen. Charles Scott, a Casper Republican, said he wouldn’t call the Senate Labor, Health and Social Services Committee back into session Wednesday because the full Senate was working into the evening.

Scott said he doubted he would call the committee into session to vote on the bill on Thursday, the last day for bills to be reported out of committee.

Scott said the bill sponsor, Democratic Sen. Chris Rothfuss of Laramie, could still bring push Medicaid expansion through an amendment to the general government appropriations bill this week.
