Residents can testify on Medicaid plans.

Local folks will be able to speak out Tuesday on Governor Corbett's Healthy Pennsylvania Plan. The Pennsylvania Department of Welfare will hold a public hearing in Altoona on the administration's request for a waiver from the federal government

People speaking at the hearing had to register to testify by January 2.

A union representing healthcare workers will be gathering outside the hearing room at the Blair County Convention Center, before the event , to express their concern with the governor's proposal.
