"I think it is imperative that we move forward to make progress on finding a resolution to this budget impasse which, in round numbers, is about $843 million apart", Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment said.

The House version of the budget contains millions of dollars in funding that would come from expanding Medicaid, but the Senate version does not.

"We have worked tirelessly over the past several months with our federal partners in Washington to demand increased innovation and flexibility in how our state runs Medicaid program", Sununu said.

The House passed the measure on a 90-3 vote, while it passed the Senate 30-1. After the House of Delegates votes on their version and a conference committee meets, it will be sent to the governor for his signature. The session is scheduled to end Saturday, March 10.

Arkansas lawmakers have approved the state's $5.6 billion budget for the coming year, wrapping up this year's fiscal session in four weeks.

Since the bill was passed last week and the General Assembly was still in session, Friday was the deadline for Northam to act.

Three states have received permission to impose work requirements, but the administration has not given any state permission to partially expand Medicaid and still receive full federal funding. Opponents argued it was a handout to the power monopoly.
