On March 6, 2012, the Public Hearing portion was completed on HB1534.
The Jeffersonian style nullification bill declares the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as unauthorized by the United States Constitution, and creates criminal penalties for persons enforcing or attempting to enforce the act. While the bill has been promised a prompt reporting following the public hearing, Spring Break will likely slow down the progress of this important act.
What we need to do now is to encourage the Missouri Speaker of the House, Rep. Steven Tilley, and Rep. John Diehl (Chairman of Rules Committee) to keep HB 1534 in the forefront. Politely explain why you are serious about the protection of you and your children’s healthcare freedom. And don’t forget to send a short thank-you to Rep. Kurt Bahr (bill sponsor), and Rep. Ward Franz (Chairman of General Laws Committee), and let them know you appreciate their work in protecting your freedoms through HB1534. Remember – If this should pass in Missouri, it will help serve as an example of how to preserve freedom in those states where Federal nullification efforts are under way.
