This is just one reason why these sort of decisions need to be taken away from states.
And those with short memories have already forgotten that the original idea was to not let the states decide that question, on the simple grounds that it would lead to chaos and be inimical to the success of the program, which success is based on strong participation. But that was not allowed to happen, we have the chaos, and the success of the program is in danger as a result.
