Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Senator Targets Medicaid Growth In Bill
A state senator in Ohio wants to create a new oversight body to keep growth in check within the Medicaid system.
The five-member joint legislative panel is part of a package of changes unveiled on Thursday by Republican Dave Burke, of Marysville. The legislation did not include an expansion of Medicaid under the federal health care law, which Gov. John Kasich has pushed for.
Burke proposes holding Medicaid growth to 3 percent per member, per month. The legislation doesn’t dictate how that target would be met.
Burke said the targets and his new oversight model would insulate Medicaid from politics and protect its long-term sustainability.
State Sen. Capri Cafaro, a Hubbard Democrat, opted against co-sponsoring the measure. She said she believes true reform must include expanding the program.
