Extra pounds mean insurance fees for Alabama workers

Associated Press, August 29, 2008
Alabama has announced it will be the first state to charge overweight state workers who don't work on slimming down. Officials have given the state's 37,527 employees a year to start getting fit, or they'll pay $25 a month for insurance that otherwise is free. The State Employees' Insurance Board will apply the obesity charge to anyone with a body mass index of 35 or higher who is not making progress on losing weight.
