Pennsylvania House passes health-insurance bill
Philadelphia Inquirer, March 18, 2008
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has passed a bill aimed at providing health coverage to about 270,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians. The vote would establish the Pennsylvania Access to Basic Care program, covering legal U.S. residents ages 19 to 64 who meet income guidelines and who have gone six months without insurance. The bill, however, faces long odds when it goes before the state Senate.
