Colorado governor signs healthcare legislation

AP/Denver Post, April 21, 2010
Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter signed four bills he promised will rein in skyrocketing healthcare costs and appointed a director who will oversee 10 state agencies to implement the Obama administration's new healthcare plan. Ritter said Colorado is ready to act on national plans to allow young people to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26, bar denying coverage to children for pre-existing conditions, and provide tax credits to small businesses to cover premiums. The changes will all go into effect in the next six months.
