Massachusetts House proposes $89 million in health fees

AP/Boston Globe, July 30, 2008
The Massachusetts House of Representatives has voted to seek another $89 million from the state, insurance companies and healthcare providers to support the Massachusetts universal healthcare law. Business leaders targeted by Gov. Deval Patrick for another $33 million in contributions were spared, however. House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi said in a statement that "modest changes" would allow universal healthcare to continue in Massachusetts while striking the right balance between state and private-sector involvement.
