hot topics in annapolis
Hot Topics in Annapolis
  • House Passes Health Exchange Bill - MARCH 26, 2012, Associated Press, ANNAPOLIS -The Maryland House of Delegates has passed a measure to create a framework for a health insurance market place to provide coverage to 700,000 uninsured residents. The House voted 94-44 for the bill Monday. A similar bill is pending in the Senate.
  • The measure builds on legislation passed last year to create the health care exchange, a mandate of federal health care reform. The measure sets up standards and regulations to run the program.
  • Supporters say the state needs to be prepared to implement the law by the January 2014 deadline under federal law.
  • Critics of the measure say Maryland is moving too fast, because the law is being challenged in the Supreme Court. The high court began hearing arguments on Monday.
