Pence, Ritz Seek Federal Dollars Without Strings Created by khavens on 7/7/2014 7:33:45 AM
(AP): Last week, two diametrically opposed Indiana politicians found
themselves doing the same dance with the federal government. Democratic
Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz filed a request Monday with the U.S.
Department of Education to grant the state a waiver from the federal No
Child Left Behind Act. The next day, Republican Gov. Mike Pence filed a
request with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to use a
state-run alternative to traditional Medicaid to expand health care for
the state's poor.
