Our very own Rep. Lois W. Kolkhorst will be appearing on national radio on Friday morning (April 29, 2011) from 10:15 till 10:30, when she'll be a guest on The Mike Gallagher Show.
She'll be discussing her efforts to create an "inter-state health care compact" with other states in an effort to regain control of health care policies from the federal government. Earlier this year Kolkhorst wrote House Bill 5, which recently passed out of the Texas House, as an answer to big federal entitlement programs such as Medicaid.
Many states like Texas are facing huge health care costs from new mandates found in President Obama's federal health care expansion. That's why almost a dozen states have filed legislation calling for a return to local control of federal health care entitlement programs. Earlier this month, Georgia became the first state to pass a bill authorizing a health care compact, with the Texas Senate expected to act on HB 5 in the next few weeks. Although rarely used, the Founding Fathers allowed for states to work together to form compacts in Article I of the US Constitution.
