AP/USA Today, March 4, 2009
Oklamhoma lawmakers showed overwhelming support for House Speaker Chris Benge's plan to provide state residents with quality healthcare through affordable private health insurance policies and reduce the number of uninsured. House members voted 99-0 for the measure that would primarily strengthen and promote the state's Insure Oklahoma program, a public-private partnership first proposed by Gov. Brad Henry in 2004.
