WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Discussions about Medicaid expansion are the focus of an annual meeting of progressive groups from across South Carolina.

Organizers say the SC Progressive Network's 17th annual spring conference is scheduled for Saturday in West Columbia.

Network co-chair Hoyt Wheeler says there will also be sessions about ethics reform and ways to make voting easier.

The sessions are free. Former Columbia Mayor Bob Coble, SC AIDS Task Force Director Bambi Gaddist and health care economist Lynn Bailey are leading the discussion on health care.
