COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio lawmakers are scheduled to hear more details about how several proposals would change the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled.

One bill before a House committee would expand the program's eligibility, while another would roll it back for certain people, such as parents and pregnant women. The measures' sponsors are expected to testify on their plans Wednesday morning.

A Senate committee also is scheduled to hear initial testimony on a bill creating an oversight body to keep Medicaid growth in check.

The hearings come ahead of a looming decision on Medicaid expansion.

The state Controlling Board is scheduled Monday to vote on a request from Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sihk) to authorize the spending of federal dollars on newly eligible Medicaid enrollees in the expansion.
