Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said Friday he will veto a Medicaid amendment to the state budget advanced by a Republican-dominated legislature that could prevent him from expanding access to the program through executive action. McAuliffe said he objected to some other measures, including language that would have stopped him from appointing judges outside of the legislative session and planned funds to renovate legislative offices, but overall would approve the rest of the two-year budget. McAuliffe's administration estimates that Medicaid expansion would provide healthcare to 400,000 uninsured Virginians and create 30,000 jobs.
