Arkansas: AG RUTLEDGE’S STATEMENT

Arkansas: AG RUTLEDGE’S STATEMENT ON U.S. SUPREME COURT BRIEF TO UPHOLD ARKANSAS’S MEDICAID EXPANSION COMMUNITY-ENGAGEMENT REQUIREMENT

(STL.News) – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today filed a reply brief in support of the State’s petition for a writ of certiorari asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review and uphold Arkansas Works’ community-engagement demonstration project.

“Arkansas Works is a pilot expansion program designed to encourage able-bodied Arkansans without dependents to transition into the workforce, building a stronger, more resilient connection with their communities,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “We urge the U.S. Supreme Court to review those requirements and reaffirm Arkansas’s commitment to making the Medicaid program more sustainable and helping Arkansans obtain employment.”

In February, the U.S. Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s decision to vacate Arkansas Works.  The U.S. Department of Justice is also seeking review in support of Arkansas’s case.
