Today’s Wall Street Journal reports that a federal appeals court ruled the Trump administration acted unlawfully when it allowed the state of Arkansas to impose requirements that some lower-income residents work or seek job training as a condition of receiving Medicaid health coverage.

According to the article, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner in approving Arkansas’s plan.
