COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Funding Medicaid expansion is more likely to be approved in Ohio now that two Republican members of a legislative panel have been replaced.

A spokesman for the House speaker says he's asked GOP Reps. Ross McGregor and Jeff McClain to serve on the Controlling Board at Monday's meeting.

McGregor says he supports Medicaid expansion.

Ohio recently got approval from the federal government to extend Medicaid eligibility. However, Gov. John Kasich's administration needs legislative sign-off to spend federal dollars on newly eligible residents.

He's turned to the seven-member Controlling Board.

The panel includes two Democrats and a Kasich appointee who are expected to favor the request Monday. That left the governor in search of a single Republican vote.
