2012 Senate Bill 973: Join multi-state Health Care Compact
Introduced by Sen. Jim Marleau (R) on February 16, 2012 To authorize Michigan’s entry into a multi-state health care compact. If approved by congress all federal Medicaid and Medicare funds would be block-granted to member states, and member states would be exempt from health-related federal regulations and mandates. Member states would have primary responsibility for regulation of all nonmilitary health care goods and services in their state, plus health-related social welfare programs. The bill is cosponsored by 20 out of 26 Senate Republicans, enough to ensure passage if they bring it up for a vote.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Health Policy Committee on February 16, 2012
