Mississippi lawmakers are back at the state Capitol for a special session that's been prolonged by Medicaid debate.
It was unclear early Monday what the House and Senate would do, if anything, about funding Medicaid, a health care program that serves thousands of children, the elderly, disabled and poor.
Gov. Haley Barbour called the special session earlier this summer to cover a number of issues, but Medicaid has been the sticking point.
Barbour Monday added to the agenda a proposal to establish a public health laboratory for the Mississippi Department of Health.
