In a huge win for health equity in North Carolina, House Bill 76—which expands Medicaid to over 600,000 of our neighbors—just passed the N.C. House for the first time ever!
This victory is due in no small part to everyone who came to the NCGA on Valentine’s Day and those who sent postcards to legislators. Your handwritten postcards were so impactful that Rep. Donny Lambeth held up a postcard while the House Health Committee heard HB 76.
But we’re not done yet. The N.C. Senate still needs to be convinced to support the bill. That’s where you come in.
Keep the spotlight on the need for Medicaid expansion by sending your N.C. Senator a handwritten letter asking them to support and pass Medicaid expansion. Time is of the essence in impacting the Senate, so please handwrite your letters ASAP.
Sign-up closes Tuesday, February 28th, at 12 pm. Indicate on the sign-up form if you’d like a stamped envelope for your letter.
