Iowa Lawmakers Seek To Pass Bill That Will Allow Small Businesses, Others To Buy Into State Program

Some Iowa lawmakers last week announced their support for a measure that would allow small businesses, local governments and not-for-profit groups to buy into the state employee health care coverage program, the AP/Omaha World-Herald reports.



The plan still is being developed, but if approved it would help small businesses compete, Sen. Jack Hatch (D-Iowa) said at a Statehouse press conference. He added that previously, many business owners resisted efforts to expand health care coverage but as the price of health insurance continues to increase, they are reconsidering their positions.



Hatch said that Gov. Chet Culver (D) has promised to support the measure (AP/Omaha World-Herald, 1/15).
