This bill is scheduled to be heard in the House Insurance and Commerce Committee, Room 149, State Capitol, tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10 am. Try to be there if you can. It is important that we have a crowd there to show our opposition. If it passes, shout out for a roll call vote.
HB 2138, “AN ACT TO ENSURE CONTINUED LOCAL REGULATION OF INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE BY ENABLING THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER TO CONTINUE SERVING ARKANSANS; TO IMPLEMENT FEDERAL HEALTHCARE REFORM; AND TO CREATE THE ARKANSAS HEALTH BENEFITS EXCHANGE; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”
Success!!!! Secure Arkansas just got word that HB 1450 was pulled down in committee this morning. Thank you, thank you!!! All our persistence paid off.
HB 1450 is coming up in the House Insurance and Commerce Committee at 9 am tomorrow. This is one of the most dangerous bills of this session. We are asking that you make three telephone calls and also email these three people.
The following bill that would make electricity rates skyrocket was not heard yesterday, but is still on the agenda and may come before the Insurance and Commerce Committee tomorrow. There are four Republican and four Democrats on the committee.
