Wiley sits on Senate panel on Medicaid

The proposed expansion of Medicaid in Pennsylvania is getting another hearing — this time in Pittsburgh.

And state Sen. Sean Wiley, of Millcreek, D-49th Dist., is joining the Senate Democratic Appropriations Committee for the public hearing — though he isn’t a member of the panel.

The hearing is scheduled to last until noon at the Wyndham University Center in Pittsburgh.

It will be streaming live at www.pasenate.com.

Among those scheduled to testify is Shona Eakin, executive director of Voices for Independence. The Erie nonprofit advocates for the disabled.

Gov. Tom Corbett is awaiting more answers from the federal government before he decides whether to accept the expansion of Medicaid in Pennsylvania. The expansion is a component of the Affordable Care Act.

The House Democratic Policy Committee held a hearing Thursday in Erie on the same subject.
