MLR Bill Passes House Committee

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media, September 21, 2012

"Michigan, not Washington, should make this decision," Upton stated.

While the committee vote clears the way for full House of Representatives consideration, HR 1206 still faces an uncertain future in this election year. Both the House and Senate are expected to recess in the next couple of days until after the November election.

There is a slim chance of a vote in the lame duck session if the bill is attached to a bigger package, but it's most likely dead until next year, explains Avram Goldstein, communications and research director for Health Care for America Now, a consumer advocacy group that opposes the bill.

Excluding agent and broker fees is categorically absurd. DO they provide healthcare?
