As of January 31, 2013: Governor Steve Beshear (D) has not yet made a decision on accepting federal funding to provide health coverage for the uninsured. However, Republican legislators have filed a bill to place that decision in the hands of the legislature, where Republicans have a majority in the Senate and Democrats have a majority in the House.
