Missouri lawmakers have, for years, decided against the part of the Affordable Care Act that would expand Medicaid—the government health care program for low-income residents. So now, activists are trying to do it themselves—by collecting signatures to get the issue on the 2020 statewide ballot.  

Activists say they added nearly 400 more signatures to their total at a Springfield parade earlier this month.
