Governor creates group to oversee healthcare reforms in Maryland

Baltimore Sun, March 25, 2010

The day after President Barack Obama signed the landmark health bill into law, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley announced a task force to oversee the implementation of federal changes, a move the governor said aims to make Maryland a national leader in the healthcare overhaul. O'Malley said the legislation builds on Maryland's efforts in recent years to expand coverage by adding thousands of parents and their children to the Medicaid rolls, offering assistance to small businesses to provide coverage to their employees, and letting young adults stay on their parents' healthcare plans to age 25, the Baltimore Sun reports.
