Georgia lawmakers cut deal that gives hospitals veto over bills

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, March 25, 2010

As part of an agreement struck between Georgia lawmakers and the state's hospitals, lawmakers have agreed to protect hospitals from "bills harmful to hospitals" for three years, according to a copy of a memo obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The memo, drawn up by the Georgia Hospital Association, the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, and Hometown Health, was agreed to by leadership in the House and Senate, a hospital association official confirmed. The agreement was struck in return for the hospitals' acceptance of a new tax on patient revenue for the next three years.
