Lt. Gov. Cox on Medicaid, Count My Vote and John Swallow (Video)

Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox says he hasn’t faced much of a learning curve moving from the legislature to the executive branch, but he has had to adjust to the scope of the work.

Cox says he’s heavily involved in the discussions between the governor’s office and the legislature over expanding Medicaid.

“The Governor asked me to focus on two major areas this session,” says Cox. “Those are Medicaid and education. The talks we’re having are productive, but the possible outcomes we’re facing cover a wide gap.”

Cox also says he’s hopeful the two sides can come to some sort of resolution before the 2014 session ends.

“Usually you can see where these things are going. I honestly don’t know where we will end up on this. I hope we can find some middle ground.”
