Kansas House Advances Health Care "Freedom" Amendment
02/11/2011
 

 Kansas House members have given first-round
approval to a proposed amendment to the state constitution aimed at
keeping a key part of last year's federal health care law from
taking effect in Kansas.
     The vote was 93-26 to advance the proposed "Health Care Freedom
Amendment." The House is expected to take final action Friday.
     The amendment adds a provision to the Kansas Constitution,
saying no law or rule shall force an individual or employer to buy
health insurance.
     It's a protest against - and a challenge to - a provision of the
federal law that requires most Americans to purchase health
insurance, starting in 2014.
     Supporters hope to get it on the ballot in November 2012, but
critics say the state can't nullify a federal law.
