Pennsylvania governor to push on insurance
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, February 5, 2008
As part of his budget proposal, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is expected to press for remaining provisions in his plan to improve access to affordable healthcare, cut costs and enhance quality. Lawmakers have shown little interest in his plan to help fund a healthcare overhaul with a tax on employers that do not offer health insurance to their workers. As a result, Rendell has backed a plan that would draw on more than $400 million accumulated in a state fund that helps doctors pay their malpractice insurance costs.
