Sen. Paul Rosino, R-Oklahoma City, issued the following comment regarding Gov. Mary Fallin's executive order directing the Oklahoma Health Care Authority to develop a work requirement in the state’s Medicaid program:

"I applaud the Governor for directing the action on her work requirements for eligible state Medicaid recipients. In February, my weekly column stated that we should follow the lead of the Trump administration and implement in Oklahoma the stated work requirements that the Governor has just championed. Since I have been elected, personal responsibility and work requirements for able-bodied adults 19 to 64 has been one of my top priorities. I will continue my efforts to push and support any legislation that will make work requirements a reality in Oklahoma," Rosino said.
