SB 1030 would slash the income cutoff for low-income parents to be eligible for SoonerCare, ending health coverage for thousands of Oklahomans. Under this bill, a single mother with one child would be too wealthy for SoonerCare if she made more than $275 per month. This new cutoff would be lower than every state in the U.S. except Texas and Alabama.
SB 1030 has been assigned to the House Appropriations and Budget Health Subcommittee and will be voted on Tuesday, April 3rd. This is how many parents in each subcommittee members district would lose coverage if this bill passes.
Please call the members of the subcommittee and remind them how many parents in their district are depending on them to vote NO to SB 1030:

Oklahoma has better options to increase working and reduce poverty, but taking away health care from struggling parents will only make our state’s economic future worse.
