Breaking: Procedural Progress on Payment Reform – Senate Debate Expected Mid-May -
This is what I looked like when I heard that we’re going to have to wait even longer for a payment reform bill to come out of the legislature.
From State House News Weekly Roundup (4/20/2012):
“The biggest policy development on Beacon Hill was not even a development at all, but rather word from the Senate that a health care containment bill would not be ready to debate while the House tackled its budget - which some had anticipated.
…the continued delay begs the questions of whether there’s time to do a health care bill at all.”
