Thanks Tom, this is a good piece of legislation forcing insurance companies to do what they should have been doing all along.
One note on who voted for this and who didn’t, there was one no vote David Floyd. Floyd owns Windsor Gardens Retirement Communities; I guess he was just trying to make sure he always has a few beds open.
There were two Representatives that didn’t bother to vote, Scott Alexander and Jim Gooch.
I guess this just proves that at least two other Representatives have their head as far up their butt as Jim Gooch.
