LISTEN: Gov. Baker Reviews State Budget

July 10, 2017

Gov. Charlie Baker is reviewing the budget passed by state lawmakers Friday. Legislators had to account for flagging tax revenues and the persistent growth of state health insurance aid for the working poor. Baker has been trying to limit spending on MassHealth, the state's Medicaid program, in order to keep workers on their employer's insurance plans and off the state rolls.
WGBH's All Things Considered host Barbara Howard spoke with WGBH News' State House reporter Mike Deehan about the budget and how it has stopped short of including all that the governor wanted.
