CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The powerful Senate Finance Committee is preparing to offer a recommendation on a proposal to continue Medicaid expansion in New Hampshire.

The committee, which is joining with members of the Senate’s health committee, will decide whether to support or oppose the plan Monday. The committee can also make changes to the plan.

After the committee vote, the bill heads to the Senate floor. If it passes without changes, it goes on to Gov. Maggie Hassan’s desk.

Continuing the plan would keep about 48,000 low income New Hampshire residents on new health insurance plans. New Hampshire’s version of the program uses federal dollars to help people buy insurance on the exchanges set up through the president’s health care overhaul law.

Maintaining the program is a key priority for Hassan.
