Missouri Gov. Mike Parson last week ended speculation about his plans for Medicaid expansion after the legislature declined to fund the program.

Parson said his administration is pulling back its plans to expand eligibility in the government health care program. The governor said without funding from the legislature, the state constitution's prohibition on unfunded mandates means he can't expand eligibility.

His critics disagree and say the constitutional amendment voters approved in August says he must expand Medicaid.
