OK Health Insurance Exchange Update – Public Meetings this Fall

OK-SAFE, 6/6/11 – The substitute language for the failed HB 2130 (HUB board bill, establishing governance of the health insurance exchange) finally appeared in SB 971, introduced on 4/27/11.

Due to all the calls, emails and legislative visits by the Oklahoma grassroots, OK leadership decided not to hear SB 971, choosing instead to form a special joint legislative committee to study the issue this fall.

From a 5/23/11 Tulsa World article by Wayne Greene:

“OKLAHOMA CITY – Two Tulsa lawmakers have been chosen to deal with one of the hottest of political hot potatoes next fall.

Sen. Gary Stanislawski, R-Tulsa, and Rep. Glen Mulready, R-Tulsa, are the leaders of a special joint legislative committee that will study how the state should respond to the federal mandate to create a state health insurance exchange.” Rest here.

These public meetings should be attended by everyone with concerns about the controversial health care reform act.

Contact Information:
Sen. Gary Stanislawski – stanislawski@oksenate.gov
Rep. Glen Mulready – glen.mulready@okhouse.gov
