Today’s inaction in the Senate prevented Senate Democrats from introducing a package of amendments aimed at limiting dramatic health insurance rate hikes. House Bill 1240 was not called for 2nd reading preventing introduction of the amendments on the Senate floor on the last day for such action.
Similar provisions were discussed in the House of Representatives today. There is a possibility that these ideas can be revived in another bill during final negotiations (conference committees) next week.
Senate Democrats look forward to working with their colleagues across the aisle and in the House to protect Hoosier consumers.
