HB 1053, The Healthcare Freedom Act, sponsored by David Meeks, failed in the House Public Health Committee on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. The full title of HB1053 is “An Act to Ensure Freedom of Choice in Health Care for All Arkansans; and to Prevent Involuntary Enrollments in Health Care Insurance Programs.” Don’t let this bill drop – call your state representative today!
Tuesday, February 1, 2011, at 10:00 am in Room 130, HB1205, Arkansas Water Additive Accountability Act, will be presented to the House Public Health Committee by Representative Loy Mauch.
HB1008, a bill that would require proof of citizenship or lawful presence in the United States for a person to be eligible for in-state tuition, was debated before the House Education Committee on January 27th, 2011. Several people spoke for and against the bill. The Department of Higher Education was supposed to give detailed information on a memo sent months ago about students whose enrollment had been flagged as possibly being fraudulent. The Head of the Department of Education, former Democrat Senator Shane Broadway, failed to provide that information, but will be back soon with it. PASSAGE of this bill is vital.
Please send a huge THANK YOU to Senator Ruth Whitaker, who has WITHDRAWN Senate Bill 3!!!
