Dear General Cuccinelli,
In the 2013 Budget there is a provision that purports to delegate to the newly created Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission, comprised of primarily but not exclusively legislators, the ability to make decisions on behalf of the entire legislature with respect to Medicaid reform and whether certain conditions have been met to proceed to the expansion of our Medicaid program.
I would like to request an official opinion with regard to whether such delegation can be done under the Virginia Constitution and Code of Virginia?
Thank you for your time and assistance. I would appreciate a response in time for something to be done prior to the April veto session if necessary. If you have any questions please contact me at 703-853-4213.
