Arizona's Proposition 101 would block universal health coverage
Arizona's Proposition 101 would block the state from enacting a universal health-insurance plan. If it passes, it would amend the state's constitution to say that no law "shall impose any penalty or fine, of any type, for choosing to obtain or decline healthcare coverage or for participation in any particular healthcare system or plan." As a result, the state wouldn't be able to launch a plan requiring everyone in the state to buy insurance or pay a fine. The bill would also block the universal health-insurance plan sponsored by Phil Lopes, a Democrat who is the minority leader of Arizona's House of Representatives.
