From the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:
Rep. Mike Kelly said Alaska’s residents deserve “health care free choice,” and he wants to amend the state constitution to give it to them.
The Fairbanks Republican announced Tuesday that he will introduce a resolution to place an amendment before voters in the 2010 general election. It would “prohibit passage of laws that compel any person or employer to participate in a particular health care system.”
Kelly said his motivation is to avoid forced participation in a government-run health insurance system. The current draft of his resolution, which he plans to introduce when the legislative session begins in January, would also prohibit laws that penalize a person, employer or health-care provider for declining to participate in a health-care system.
