Two and a half million people in Michigan get their health care coverage through Medicaid or the Healthy Michigan Medicaid expansion.

But the work requirement bill recently passed by the state Senate, and now being considered by the House, could mean tens of thousands of people lose their health insurance.
We're talking about Senate Bill 897. It requires Medicaid recipients to prove they work at least 29 hours a week in order to keep their health care coverage.
But there is a certain loophole in that bill which drew a sharp rebuke in a recent New York Times editorial written by University of Michigan Law School professors Nicholas Bagley and Eli Savit.
Bagley joined Stateside today to explain why they say this loophole is "racially discriminatory." Listen above.
Stateside reached out to three of the cosponsors of Senate Bill 897 — Senator Mike Shirkey, Senator Phil Pavlov, and Senator Wayne Schmidt — and offered them a chance to talk with us. We have not yet heard back, but the invitation still stands.
