Parity Vote Delayed Again

The Insurance Committee of the State House discussed Rep. Martha Alexander's mental health parity bill today. However, the debate lasted so long that the committee ran out of time and adjourned without voted. It is expected that the committee will meet again on Thursday and complete their discussion. The insurance industry is lobbying hard against this bill. It is unclear what the outcome will be.
