It's been two years since state lawmakers were in session. Back then, they had to slash more than $5 billion from education to make the books balance. When the 83rd legislative session gets underway on Tuesday, lawmakers will not only have to grapple once again with education funding, but also how to expand Medicaid, as called for in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. State Representative Garnet Coleman sat down with Morning Edition Host David Pitman to talk about those issues, and how this session will be different, since Republicans no longer hold a super majority of both the House and Senate.
