LAZICH, GOP COLLEAGUES WANT HEARING ON HEALTH CARE MANDATE
SJR 62 denies government attempt to force purchase of health care on WI citizens
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Sen. Lazich
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 31, 2010 PHONE: (608) 266-5400
(MADISON)- State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) is renewing her request that the chairman of the state Senate Health Committee, state Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton) hold a hearing on a proposed state constitutional amendment about the approved federal government health care mandate. Senate Joint Resolution 62 (SJR 62) provides that
“This is the single most important bill of the legislative session,” said Lazich, the ranking minority member of the state Senate Health Committee. “
Lazich appeared at a state Capitol news conference with SJR 62 author, state Senator Joe Leibham (R-Sheboygan), and co-author, state Representative Robin Vos (R-Racine) to urge the Joint Resolution be scheduled for a public hearing. During the news conference, Lazich held up a letter she sent to Senator Erpenbach, requesting a public hearing.
“What could be more bipartisan than to conduct a public hearing on this resolution before the legislative session runs out,” said Lazich. “If people like the federal mandate, they can testify in support. If people do not like the mandate that imposes fines for failing to purchase insurance, they can testify in opposition.”
Lazich said the quality of health care is likely to deteriorate in Wisconsin under the approved federal health care bill.
