Last week, the Iowa House of Representatives approved bill House File 111 and effectively made Iowa residents able to ignore the federal government’s healthcare insurance mandates. One representative that voted for the bill, Lance Horbach, stated, “This bill deals with the federal government impeding upon states rights and individuals rights. We have the ability, the sovereign ability in the state of Iowa and as legislators representing the people to make that decision.”
The bill would allow Iowans to opt out of the federal healthcare that goes into effect in 2014. Proponents of the bill say that those who opt out will be covered by a law that prevents healthcare insurance companies from denying coverage. House File 111 passed with a 59 to 39 vote and will now be considered in the Senate.
