LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Senator Robert Duncan and State Representatives John Frullo and Charles Perry visited with the Lubbock City Council on Friday.

It was part of a special town hall meeting held to discuss some of the issues facing the upcoming legislative session in Austin.

Medicaid was on the agenda, along with a discussion of whether Texas should expand the Affordable Care Act.

Duncan said, "My view is right now, unless we can get certain types of waivers from the federal government and C.M.S. on the ways Medicaid works and our ability to help control costs and fraud - it's difficult to support expanding Medicaid."

Duncan says this is an important issue and he is working to find the best solution.
