Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says he is sending staff to Washington D.C. to start negotiations on Monday with federal officials over Medicaid. Herbert told reporters Tuesday that he himself will travel there in April to continue talks. The Republican governor wants to expand Medicaid by seeking a block grant of federal money rather than enrolling moor poor Utah residents on the government health care program.
