Arkansas Senate approves "private option"

The Senate voted 27-8 to reauthorize funding for the "private option" program that uses federal Medicaid funds to purchase private insurance for low-income residents. Arkansas was the first state to win approval for such a plan as an alternative to expanding Medicaid under the federal health law.
