Arkansas Delegation Expresses Support for Arkansas’s 1115 Waiver Request for Obamacare Relief

2017/10/11

WASHINGTON – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) along with Senator John Boozman (R-Arkansas) and Congressmen Rick Crawford (AR-01), French Hill (AR-02), Steve Womack (AR-03), and Bruce Westerman (AR-04) today sent a letter to acting Health and Human Services Secretary, Don Wright, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma expressing strong support for Arkansas’s 1115 Waiver Request for relief from Obamacare’s Medicaid requirements.

“We appreciated the Administration’s outreach urging Arkansas to pursue innovative Medicaid reforms. In particular, HHS and CMS suggested that Arkansas prioritize tax payer dollars to protect the most vulnerable populations. Arkansas has followed this guidance and designed a solution that will reduce our Medicaid rolls by over 60,000, increase the sustainability of Arkansas Works, and encourage more Arkansans to enter the workforce,” the letter reads. 

Arkansas is seeking federal approval to prioritize its Medicaid program to focus on the most vulnerable Arkansans, while helping others enter the workforce.

The letter goes to on to say that “by empowering Arkansas to make the changes needed to put its health care programs on a better path, the Administration will demonstrate its leadership in reducing Medicaid spending and advancing conservative health care reform.” 

The full text of the letter can be found below or by clicking here.

 

The Honorable Don Wright, Acting Secretary

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

200 Independence Avenue, S.W.

Washington, D.C. 20201

 

The Honorable Mick Mulvaney, Director

The Office of Management and Budget

Washington, D.C. 20503

 

Administrator Verma

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

200 Independence Avenue, S.W.

Washington, D.C. 20201

 

Re: Arkansas’ Pending 1115 Waiver Amendments

 

Dear Acting Secretary Wright, Director Mulvaney, and Administrator Verma,

 

We write to express our strong support for the changes Arkansas is seeking to the Arkansas Works Section 1115 Medicaid Demonstration Project. The state submitted this proposal to Health and Human Services on June 30, 2017.  

We urge immediate approval of Arkansas’ request to ensure that Arkansas has sufficient time to implement program changes and provide notice to impacted beneficiaries. With 2018 rapidly approaching, approval can provide certainty for our citizens, health care providers, and health insurance carriers.

We appreciated the Administration’s outreach urging Arkansas to pursue innovative Medicaid reforms. In particular, HHS and CMS suggested that Arkansas prioritize tax payer dollars to protect the most vulnerable populations. Arkansas has followed this guidance and designed a solution that will reduce our Medicaid rolls by over 60,000, increase the sustainability of Arkansas Works, and encourage more Arkansans to enter the workforce.

Arkansas is seeking changes including (1) lowering the income limit for Arkansas Works eligibility from 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL) to 100% FPL; (2) establishing work requirements as a condition of eligibility for able-bodied adults that do not have children at home; (3) and implementing the state’s waiver of retroactive eligibility.

 By approving this request, the Administration can advance its commitments to federalism and flexible solutions for improving our Medicaid program.

Earlier this year, Governor Hutchinson called a special session of the Arkansas General Assembly to authorize this waiver amendment request and instructed the state’s Department of Human Services and Insurance Department to work with stakeholders to prepare for implementation. Our state has invested significant resources in this effort, but federal approval is needed to continue moving forward.

By empowering Arkansas to make the changes needed to put its health care programs on a better path, the Administration will demonstrate its leadership in reducing Medicaid spending and advancing conservative health care reform.   

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) 

Senator John Boozman (R-Arkansas) 

Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-01)

Congressman French Hill (AR-02) 

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-03) 

Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04)

Womack Wants Tax Reform for All Americans

2017/09/27

WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released today the following statement after the framework for tax reform was released:

 

“Our current tax code is complicated, confusing, and full of special-interest loopholes. It has been 31 years since we have had major reform, and I am optimistic about the unified framework laid out today. Americans deserve to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks and spend less time filing taxes. Tax relief for small businesses is necessary in order for them to grow. The time for tax reform is now, and I am hopeful that this plan will lift the financial burden off of working families while putting America first.”

Readout of Delegation Meeting with Secretary Perry About the Clean Line Project

2017/09/26

WASHINGTON – Arkansas’s congressional delegation advocated for the preservation of states’ rights and a review of the Plains and Eastern Clean Line Project—an energy transmission line that stretches nearly 300 miles across the state—in a meeting with the Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Rick Perry on Monday.

The latest step in the delegation’s efforts to highlight Clean Line’s attempt to usurp state’s rights, U.S. Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) and U.S. Representatives Rick Crawford (AR-01), French Hill (AR-02), Steve Womack (AR-03) and Bruce Westerman (AR-04) laid out a case as to why leaving the states out of the decision-making process sets a dangerous precedent.

The delegation pointed out that when the Obama administration signed an agreement to participate in the Clean Line project in March 2016, after the plan was reviewed and rejected by the Arkansas Public Services Commission (PSC), it allowed the federal government to circumvent the will of states. 

The delegation provided the following quote after the meeting concluded:

“We thank Secretary Perry for taking the time to meet with us on this pressing matter. We understand the Secretary inherited this agreement, which has all the hallmarks of the Obama administration’s excessive government overreach. While this problem was not caused by the Trump administration, Secretary Perry indicated that he is committed to a thorough review of how this project was allowed to advance. We stand ready to provide Secretary Perry with all the information needed to make appropriate decisions as the review process moves forward.”

2017/09/21

WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released today the following statement after President Donald Trump imposed new economic sanctions on North Korea:

Womack Responds to the Administration’s Announcement Regarding DACA Eligible Immigrants

2017/09/05

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement in response to the Administration’s announcement regarding DACA eligible immigrants:   

“The issue of DACA-eligible young people is a manifestation of a broken immigration enforcement system. I have a heart for their plight. At the same time, I believe that part of the genius of America is that we are a nation of laws. The President is right; Congress has the responsibility to address this issue and now is the time to do so. With thoughtful debate, jobs can be protected, lawful immigration can be championed, and the proper relief can come for the young people who know only America as their country and who continue to work hard to achieve that American dream.”

Congressman Stephen A. Womack, 59, is a native of Russellville, Arkansas.  After attending K-10 in Moberly, Missouri, Womack’s family returned to Arkansas in 1973, and he graduated from Russellville High School in 1975.  Womack earned a Bachelor’s degree from Arkansas Tech University in 1979 and, after graduation, was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Arkansas Army National Guard.

In the fall of 1979, Steve relocated to Rogers where he and his father established KURM Radio, and he served as station manager from 1979-1990.  In August of 1990, Steve accepted an assignment with the University of Arkansas Army ROTC program and served as Executive Officer of the program for six years.  In 1996, Steve was hired as a financial consultant with Merrill Lynch.

On November 3, 1998, Steve was elected Mayor of Rogers and served in that capacity for twelve years.  During his tenure, the City of Rogers experienced exponential economic growth, adding $1 billion in new development with major improvements to the city’s infrastructure, retail services, and quality of life amenities.

Steve also served on numerous boards and commissions in Northwest Arkansas serving as Chairman of the Northwest Regional Planning Commission, Chairman of Rogers United Way, board member of the Rogers-Lowell Chamber of Commerce, and the Rogers Parks Commission.  A former Rotarian, Steve is also a Paul Harris Fellow.  In 2014, he was inducted into the Arkansas Tech University Hall of Distinction as a Distinguished Alumnus.

In the Army National Guard, Steve served in a variety of command and staff assignments, including command of 2nd Battalion, 153rd Infantry, 39th Separate Infantry Brigade. Following the tragic events of 9-11, Steve’s battalion was mobilized for duty with the Multi-National Force and Observers (MFO), Sinai, Egypt in 2002.  It marked the first time in the history of the 39th Brigade that a battalion was deployed overseas.  It was also the first time in the MFO history the US Battalion mission was conducted by a pure National Guard unit.  Steve’s task force received praise from the highest levels of civil and military leadership around the world and is credited with convincing Army leadership of the capabilities and readiness of the Army Guard.

Steve retired with over thirty years of service from the Arkansas Army National Guard October 31, 2009, at the rank of Colonel. His decorations include the Legion of Merit, the Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, the Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, and the Global War on Terror Expeditionary and Service Medals, and the Arkansas Distinguished Service Medals.  Steve was inducted into the Arkansas Officer Candidate School Hall of Fame in 2011, and in 2015, he was awarded the Harry S. Truman Award – the highest recognition conferred upon an individual by the National Guard Association of the United States – for his contributions of exceptional and far-reaching magnitude to the defense and security of the United States.

In the House, Steve serves on the Appropriations Committee and the Defense, Financial Services, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees, as well as the House Budget Committee.  Steve is also on the Whip Team and various caucuses.

Steve has been married to his wife, Terri, for over 31 years, and they have three grown sons and two grandsons, Liam and Kaden.
