Who do you stand with for LB 577?

Who do you stand with for LB 577?

LB 577, the bill that would extend Medicaid coverage, would help 54,000 uninsured, working Nebraskans get access to health care.  It would provide security to our rural hospitals, our working families, and our veterans.  It is beneficial to our economy, returning $2.3 billion to our state.  And it would save an estimated 500 lives every year.

Make a sign showing who you’re standing with that could be helped by LB 577 and bring it to the rally.

Being there on May 15 could make all the difference!  We have a great chance to do the right thing for our uninsured people and our state’s economy.
