Senate Roll Call 607 on
2013 Initiated Legislation 1: Ban abortion coverage through federal health care law "Obamacare“ exchange

To prohibit health insurance policies sold in Michigan through the federal health care law’s “exchange” from including abortion coverage. Individuals could use their own money to purchase a policy “rider” for this outside the exchange if they choose, but no federal subsidy would cover the cost. The initiated legislation was placed before the legislature through a petition drive organized by Right to Life of Michigan, after Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed a pair of 2012 insurance bills that contained the same provision. No approval from the Governor is required for initiated legislation to go into effect.
