CLEVELAND

More than 1,000 people turned out for a rally at a Cleveland church to urge state leaders to expand Medicaid in Ohio.

The Plain Dealer newspaper of Cleveland reports that the assembly Thursday night at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church brought together religious congregations, community groups and health care providers. The aim was to show public support for expansion of Medicaid coverage under the new federal health care law.

Republican Gov. John Kasich is expected to decide soon whether Ohio should opt for Medicaid expansion. The governor plans to make the decision known when he unveils his two-year state budget proposal Feb. 4.

Should Kasich go for the expansion, the GOP-controlled Legislature would have to approve it.

Medicaid provides health care to millions of poor Americans.
