Missouri Chamber endorses Amendment 2: Medicaid expansion

Posted on

Daniel P. Mehan, President and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The following statement is from Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry:

“The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry supports Amendment 2 as a pro-jobs measure that will help fuel economic growth throughout our state. According to economic projections, expanding Missouri’s Medicaid program will boost job creation by 16,000 jobs per year for five years. Likewise, passage will expand our state’s economic output by $2.5 billion. While this data makes a clear case for passing Amendment 2, the benefits of Medicaid expansion are even more significant during this time of economic hardship. The Missouri Chamber urges voters to approve Amendment 2 on August 4. Let’s not miss this chance to bolster our economy during this recovery while expanding access to health care for our fellow Missourians.”
