Gov. McAuliffe is expected to make the announcement at 11:30 a.m. at the State Capitol.

Lawmakers voted on a two-year budget last week that did not include expanding Medicaid eligibility. McAuliffe has claimed that the decision was influenced by the Tea Party.

The governor has not said whether or not he'll sign the budget into law. He has until Sunday to make that decision.
