Pennsylvania House to debate health-plan expansion
Philadelphia Inquirer, March 10, 2008
An expansion of state-subsidized health insurance for uninsured adults is expected to be debated soon in the Pennsylvania House. Rep. Todd Eachus, chairman of the House Democratic Policy Committee, said that he was putting the finishing touches on legislation to provide low-cost insurance to roughly 800,000 uninsured adults and small businesses that cannot afford to cover employees. The move comes more than a year after Gov. Ed Rendell introduced a plan intended to accomplish that goal.
