Republican lawmakers on Tuesday introduced bicameral legislation to repeal Medicaid maintenance-of-effort requirements they say are burdensome and force states to make significant cuts to programs such as education and law enforcement.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) introduced the State Flexibility Act, while Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.), a physician, and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) co-sponsored a companion bill in the House.
