‘No repeal, no replace’: Utahns rally in support of Prop 3

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Hundreds of people gathered in the Utah State Capitol Rotunda Monday to rally in support of Proposition 3.

This comes amid concern that the state’s legislature is considering amending or repealing the proposition. One proposed bill would restrict Medicaid Expansion in the state by imposing work requirements and capping enrollment.

Supporters of Medicaid Expansion say this will impact the health of the most vulnerable. They say this expansion is the will of the people. Prop 3 passed in November with more than 53 percent of the vote.

“That we really insist on April first as the start date… that we really want 150,000 of our hardworking friends and neighbors to get healthcare they desperately need,” said a representative with AARP who spoke at the rally.  

The AARP along with Utah Health Policy Project and the United Way of Utah were among organizations that supported or sponsored the event.
