Pennsylvania House sends health insurance bill to Senate

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, June 30, 2009

A bill to open Pennsylvania's government-subsidized health-insurance program to 85,000 more lower-income adults has won House approval. But while passage had been a priority of House Democrats who symbolically numbered it House Bill 1, only a single Republican representative crossed party lines in the 104-96 vote. It was sent to the Republican-majority state Senate, where a GOP spokesman said there were no plans to take it up.
