Public Hearing - To allow undocumented residents to buy health insurance

February 14, 2019

A bill I am introducing, HB 6093 to allow undocumented residents to purchase health insurance is getting a public hearing before the Insurance and Real State Committee. I joined a group of colleagues and advocates for a press conference before the public hearing began to talk about the measure.

If this legislation passes, we can lower the cost for every taxpayer. We are subsidizing the insurance system and it comes at an extraordinary cost. The measure would bar certain health carriers from refusing to deliver health insurance policies on the basis of someone’s immigration status.
