Republican governors are asking Washington for more flexibility regarding how they run their Medicaid programs, saying that Washington puts too many restraints on states. Separately, the House of Representatives is expected to pass legislation that would repeal a provision in the health law that would require businesses to submit a 1099 form to the Internal Revenue Service for any goods or services over $600. The Senate has also passed legislation that would strike the 1099 requirement from the bill but the House and Senate approaches differ over how to finance the change.
