Medicaid Latest

Conferees from the Mississippi House and Senate met throughout the evening Thursday on the matter. However, they did not reach an agreement.

The main sticking point is whether or not to use money from Mississippi's Tobacco Trust Fund to help fund the ailing agency.

Previously, Mississippi's Medicaid agency was well over $100 short of what it needed to operate.

Lawmakers are resuming work on the matter Friday.
