Missouri Passes Law Against Health Insurance Mandate

The list of states fighting back against what they consider an unconstitutional federal health insurance mandate is growing. The latest legislature to pass a law on the issue is Missouri’s.

This November, voters will be able to decide whether the national government can force people to either buy Missouri health insurance or pay a fine. If the measure passes, it will become a new state law that continues to set the stage for a Supreme Court showdown.

It doesn’t need the Democratic governor’s signature, which it probably wouldn’t get. Although the Senate passed the bill, the Missouri House of Representatives still needs to confirm it. Many conservative Republicans sought an amendment to the state Constitution.
