Move toward single payer health plan for Colorado dies in Legislature
Denver Business Journal, April 16, 2009
A proposal that would have taken the first steps toward a government-run single payer system to handle healthcare reimbursements in Colorado was dropped by its sponsor. House Bill 1273, sponsored by Rep. John Kefalas, was scheduled to be heard by the House of Representatives after being approved by the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee on a close party-line vote in March. It also was approved in an initial voice vote earlier this month, but Kefalas apparently lacked the votes needed for final approval.
