HB DosPosted: February 2, 2011
Word filtering from Raleigh is that the house will take up HB 2 today:
The newly elected conservative majority in the General Assembly is already working to make good on campaign promises to protect North Carolina citizens from federal health care regulation. House Bill 2, titled “Protect Health Care Freedom” sponsored by Representatives Stam (R-Wake), Barnhart (R-Cabarrus), Hollo (R-Alexander), and Murry (R-Wake), was the first item on the legislative agenda. The bill is progressing quickly in the House and will soon see debate on the floor.
House Bill 2 is by no means a repeal of Obamacare, but it would put laws in place to challenge some of the more controversial mandates of the federal health care law. The bill seeks to preserve health care freedom by enacting three specific protections.
