Rep. Pasch Statement on Audit of State Health Programs
MADISON – State Representative Sandy Pasch (D – Whitefish Bay ) released the following statement regarding the release of a Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) evaluation of our state’s vital Medical Assistance programs:
“It is clear that we must critically examine options to make our state's Medical Assistance programs more efficient and cost-effective. The LAB audit provides a deliberative analysis and thoughtful range of potential changes to address financial pressures on these important programs.
“Unfortunately, instead of considering these weighty decisions in an inclusive, accountable and evidence-based manner that allowed for ample public input and legislative oversight, the Walker administration rushed through a misguided and ideologically-driven plan that will punish tens of thousands of the neediest and youngest Wisconsinites.
