2011 House Bill 4572

House Roll Call 236: Passed

To prohibit the state, local governments, public schools, colleges and universities from providing employee health insurance benefits whose premiums cost more that $5,500 for a single person, $11,000 for a couple and $15,000 for a family plan, indexed to the medical price index. The cap would not become effective until existing government employee union contracts requiring more costly coverage have expired. Government employers who break the cap would get less state money.
