Governor Hutchinson on DC Healthcare Debate

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Governor Asa Hutchinson is playing a key role in the current efforts in Washington to repeal and replace Obamacare. 

He says he joined four governors, U.S. senators and the Trump Administration in a "very quiet group" to develop the Graham-Cassidy bill.

The governor stressed the legislation doesn't represent a significant cost shift to states, rather it gives them more flexibility.

Hutchinson calls the bill the best and only option.

"If this doesn't pass, I think the Affordable Care Act is here in perpetuity. It's built into the fabric of our healthcare system and I don't see it changing, so this is our last chance."

The governor says the state's Medicaid expansion program- Arkansas Works- would also continue.
