Health Care Freedom Bill Resurfaces

Lawmakers have resurrected legislation aimed at exempting Kansas from the federal health care law. Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook, a Shawnee Republican, introduced the so-called “Health Care Freedom Act” as an amendment to a bill. It is designed to keep Kansans from having to comply with any federal requirement to purchase health insurance. Pilcher-Cook says the act will help preserve the rights of Kansans.

Opponents say the act would be trumped by federal law. The House inserted similar language into a bill yesterday (MON), and gave final approval to the bill today (TUE).
