Health Care and a Higher Minimum Wage
Thursday's health and Medicaid budget hearing included some carry over from last year's budget: specifically, adjusting to the rising minimum wage.

Joining us to explain more are the association's President, Claudia Hammar, and Laura Haight, the Vice President for public policy.
