South Carolina State Representatives Duncan, Long and Wylie have House Joint Resolution 4240 (HJR4240), which proposes a South Carolina State Constitutional Amendment stating that “No law may be enacted that restricts an individual’s freedom of choice of private health care systems or private health insurance plans of any type. No law may be enacted that interferes with an individual’s or entity’s right to pay directly for lawful medical services. No law may be enacted imposing a penalty or fine, of any type, for choosing to obtain or decline health care coverage or for participation in any particular health care system or plan.”
If approved by both houses of the South Carolina legislature, it will go to a ballot vote for final approval by the citizens of the state.
New Hampshire recently introduced a bill to make law that not only makes federal restrictions of health care choices illegal in the state, but also expressly prohibits interference in these choices by federal agents and requires state agencies to interpose as a protection.
