A Wyoming bill requiring Medicaid recipients to work a set number of hours per week to receive benefits moved forward Friday in the state House.

The bill, which passed its first reading in the state House by a slim margin despite it being destined for failure moments before the vote, would require all “able-bodied” Medicaid recipients who are not disabled or are caretakers for children under six years old to work at least 20 hours a week to receive benefits, the Casper Star Tribune reported.

A similar bill proposed in 2018 passed the state Senate but died in the state House, according to the Tribune.

Approximately 60,000 Wyoming residents receive Medicaid, according to the state’s Department of Health.

I can't help but wonder why such people would be beneficiaries of Medicaid in the first place.

Because they don’t have sufficient income.
