South Dakota voters passed Medicaid expansion. They could be asked to add work requirements next.

South Dakota voters passed a Medicaid expansion measure in November, but now state lawmakers are proposing a ballot issue that would add work requirements to that expansion, CBS affiliate KELO reported Jan. 23. 

If lawmakers' proposed resolution passes, South Dakota voters would be asked in the 2024 election whether to impose the requirement on any eligible person who is "able-bodied," according to the report. 

Currently, Georgia is set to become the only state with work requirements when its limited Medicaid expansion begins in July.  

South Dakota's Medicaid expansion measure passed with 56 percent of the vote, according to the report.
