Pennsylvania health agency’s hiatus is over
Gov. Ed Rendell has signed an executive order reopening the highly regarded Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council after an unexpected weeklong hiatus. The agency fell victim to the budget season's political battle, and the order allows it to resume operations through November and send its 44 employees back to work. The council is an independent agency considered a national leader in studying the quality of healthcare and its cost at the state level.
