ATLANTA (WTOC) -

At least a dozen people were removed Tuesday morning by Capitol police after they began protesting in the Senate gallery.

They were urging Gov. Nathan Deal to reverse his course on expanding Medicaid.

The protests were a part of a coalition of liberal groups called Moral Monday. They have staged similar displays throughout the legislative session, which wraps up this week.
