2014 House Bill 5697: Repeal ban on abortion coverage through federal health care exchange
  1. Introduced by Rep. Sarah Roberts (D) on June 12, 2014, to repeal the 2013 law initiated by a petition from the people and enacted by a legislative majority to prohibit health insurance policies sold through the federal health care law’s “exchange” from including abortion coverage, which requires individuals to use their own money to purchase a policy “rider” covering abortion if this is what they want.
    • Referred to the House Insurance Committee on June 12, 2014.
