San Francisco Chronicle - Andrew Taylor, Associated Press Writer

The Obama administration will propose giving cash-strapped states about $25 billion worth of help with their Medicaid budgets when presenting its 2011 budget on Monday, a White House official with knowledge of the plan said Friday. The proposal would extend for six months — until July of next year — the help that states got in last year’s economic stimulus bill with their Medicaid programs.
