nebraska-flagThat’s correct, right from the state that gave you the “Nebraska Compromise” comes proposed legislation to nullify a national health care plan within the borders of the state.

Introduced on January 13, 2010 by State Senator Beau McCoy and 11 co-sponsors, LR289CA is a “Constitutional amendment to prohibit laws that restrict or interfere with choice of health care plans or direct payment for medical services.”

With this proposed legislation, Nebraska joins Washington, South Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Florida and a number of other states also considering legislation or state Constitutional Amendments to effectively nullify, or resist any future national health care plan.

In Arizona, HCR2014 was passed by both the House and Senate and will be on the ballot for approval in November.

From the text of the legislation:

Because all people should have the right to make decisions about their health care, no law shall be passed that:

(1) Restricts a person’s freedom of choice of private health care systems or private health plans of any type;

(2) Interferes with a person’s or an entity’s right to pay directly for lawful medical services; or

(3) Imposes a penalty or fine of any type for choosing to obtain or decline health care coverage or for participation in any particular health care 1 system or health plan.

If approved by Nebraska’s Unicameral Legislature, the proposed amendment will be submitted to the people of the state for a ballot vote in November, 2010.
