State lawmakers are reviewing the $2 trillion coronavirus relief package that includes financial incentives to expand Medicaid.

Doing so would help provide health coverage for low-income Alabamians and mean that more than 300,000 people throughout the state would be covered.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Kay Ivey said the governor is reviewing the state's share of the cost and that she is open to discussing it after receiving more information.
