2011 House Bill 4050: Ban health care “individual mandate”
  1. Introduced by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on January 13, 2011, to place in statute a prohibition on any state law or agency rule that would directly or indirectly “compel any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system.” Unlike recent proposals that would place a "health care freedom act" in the Constitution, a majority of the legislature could amend or repeal this statutory ban with the governor’s signature. However, unlike a constitutional amendment, a two-thirds vote of both the House and Senate is not required to place this prohibition in statute.
    • Referred to the House Health Policy Committee on January 13, 2011.
