Arkansas lawmakers have given initial approval to moving 60,000 people off the state's hybrid Medicaid expansion program and to impose a work requirement on its participants.
The House on Tuesday voted 71-23 for the new restrictions by a 71-23, while the Senate approved an identical measure by a 23-9 vote.
Final votes on the bills are expected in both chambers on Wednesday.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson earlier this year proposed the restrictions, which must also be approved by the federal government.
