Friday open line and video roundup. Plus: More pressure on governor over Medicaid; a verdict in Colorado

Posted By on Fri, Aug 7, 2015 at 4:09 PM


Here's the Friday open line and video news roundup.

* KEEPING UP THE PRESSURE: State Rep. Eddie Armstrong of North Little Rock, the House minority leader, has written Gov. Asa Hutchinson urging him to expand from 10 to 30 days the time for Medicaid recipients to respond to queries about changes in income for purposes of assuring that they remain eligible. Seems fair. The law would allow a lot more. The 10-day rule is a disaster and unfair, almost scandalously so. Armonstrong also wants the state to keep each case open for 60 days to be sure verification is correct.


* VERDICT IN THEATER SHOOTIG: A Colorado jury has spared James Holmes' life in sentencing him to life in prison for 12 slayings in an Aurora, Colorado theater. His attorney had asked that the death penalty not be given because of Holmes' mental illness, though he was found competent to stand trial.
