Dr. Christopher Lillis said citizens can still influence Virginia's General Assembly to include Medicaid expansion in the state's 2012-14 budget, even if Gov. Bob McDonnell did not include it in his recommendations.
Lillis participated with Sister Mary Ellen Lacy, one of the Nuns on the Bus from NETWORK, the national Catholic social justice lobby, in Tuesday's lunch hour panel discussion at St. George's Episcopal Church.
"Get to know your state senator and state representatives and contact them," Lillis said.
