Colorado Democrats revel in new healthcare laws

Denver Post, July 2, 2008

Democratic Colorado lawmakers have proclaimed victory for healthcare consumers now that several healthcare laws passed earlier this year took effect. In a news conference, the lawmakers highlighted bills requiring medical insurance companies to get state approval before raising premiums and three other bills they said will improve access to medical treatment for the poor, elderly and those living in rural areas. They were among the approximately 50 bills dealing with healthcare that the Colorado legislature passed this year.
