Committee vote could delay Connecticut governor’s healthcare plan
AP/Hartford Courant, March 14, 2008
Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell is threatening to veto a bill that could delay her affordable health insurance program. In addition to creating the new Charter Oak Health Care Plan for uninsured adults, Rell wants to change the state's existing HUSKY health insurance program by moving patients into a managed care organization. The Human Services Committee has voted to separate the two proposals, which Rell says could delay Charter Oak by six months.
