A statewide coalition is collecting signatures to expand medicaid coverage for thousands of uninsured Oklahomans.

The Oklahoman reports a group of doctors, patients, business leaders, and non-profits launched "Oklahomans Decide Healthcare" Wednesday.

The group wants to obtain about $1 billion in federal tax money to expand medicaid for up to 200,000 Oklahomans.

They need to collect almost 178,000 signatures for the issue to appear on the November 2020 ballot.
