Meanwhile, in Michigan and Ohio, Fran Brennan and Dan Heck from Working America started petitions calling on Governors Rick Snyder and John Kasich to accept the funding. After the petitions collected a combined 16,000 signatures, and after grassroots campaigning by advocates, Governors Martinez, Snyder, and Kasich accepted the funds, vastly extending health care coverage in their states.
