Connecticut pushes ahead on healthcare

Hartford Courant, July 22, 2009
Connecticut became the latest state to pass legislation to revamp its healthcare system, moving ahead with a plan to cover uninsured residents despite budget pressures. Connecticut's Democrat-controlled legislature overrode Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell's veto to enact a universal-coverage law slated to go into effect by 2012. The bill envisions covering almost all Connecticut citizens and creating a publicly run health-insurance option for individuals and small businesses.
