Georgia governor's hospital tax strongly opposed

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 17, 2010

Several key lawmakers say they will not support Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue's plan for a hospital "bed" tax to help fund a $608 million shortfall in Medicaid, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The lawmakers said the new tax could add to the burden of already struggling hospitals and possibly raise medical costs for patients. The Georgia House is slated to hold a public hearing on the hospital bed tax on Feb. 17 at the state Capitol.
