I know this is late notice but Friday, Jan 28, 3pm, the first of a series of bills that reject Obamacare in Montana is being heard in the Human Services committee. Gary MacLaren is sponsoring the bill and could really use all of our support at the hearing. If at all possible, go to the capital and support the following bill:
HB 206 – Constitutional amendment on freedom to choose health care coverage.
This is an amendment to Article II of the Montana Constitution providing for the right to choose health insurance coverage. If passed in the Act will be submitted to the voters on the 2012 ballot.
This is the link to the 2-page bill http://data.opi.mt.gov/bills/2011/billpdf/HB0206.pdf which reads:
“(1) All individuals and employers have the right to choose whether or not to purchase or participate in any plan of health insurance coverage. No individual or employer shall pay a fine, penalty, or fee or be subject to civil or criminal sanction for exercising the right to choose whether to purchase or participate in health insurance coverage.
(2) A health care provider shall not pay a fine, penalty, or fee or be subject to civil or criminal sanction for accepting direct payment for health care services from an individual or an employer, on behalf of an employee, if the individual or employer has exercised the right to choose whether to purchase or participate in a plan of health insurance coverage.”
