Businesses favor finance panel's health bill
Business groups that have opposed House versions of a health bill say they are warmer toward the version emerging from Sen. Max Baucus's Finance Committee, which places less-onerous requirements on employers. "The bills from the House, we cannot support," Antonio Perez, chief executive of Eastman Kodak Co. and chairman of the Business Roundtable, told the Wall Street Journal. But Baucus's proposal, he said, "covers most of the issues we brought into this reform. Even though it's not exactly what we'd like to have, it's very closely aligned to the principles of the Business Roundtable."
