Massachusetts Senate to watch U.S. health plan
In an effort to ensure that any overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system does not undermine the Massachusetts health insurance law, state legislative leaders will announce a special Senate committee to monitor congressional action and suggest potential changes. Chairing the new committee will be Senator Richard Moore, a Democrat who also is one of several state lawmakers invited to the White House to discuss how the Massachusetts' experience can help national leaders as they craft their blueprint.
