Governor Dave Freudenthal addressed the idea brought forth by several legislators of a possible special session to address federal health care reform at a news conference Wednesday.

Freudenthal says that state agencies are analyzing the health care reform bill’s possible impacts to Medicaid and other programs in Wyoming.  The governor said states are not required to be in Medicaid, but the key is to figure out what that means for the 80,000 people currently covered by the program.

The Governor was also joined by advocates for children and about 30 students from a nearby preschool, as he signed a proclamation intended to raise awareness about the need to prevent child abuse and neglect, proclaiming April as Child Abuse Awareness month.
