Opt Out: States With Legislation Opposing Certain Health Reforms

By Beacon Staff

I mentioned earlier this week that Billings Republican Sen. Roy Brown is planning on introducing legislation that would allow Montana to opt out of any health care reform plan that may come out of Congress. Well, lawmakers from at least 11 states are a step of ahead him (Montana legislators do meet bi-annually). According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, as of late October, formal resolutions or bills opposing certain aspects of federal health care have been proposed in Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wyoming.
