The House May Need to Vote on Health Care Again

  • The House May Need to Vote on Health Care Again

They reconvened Monday. The cost for the legislative session is $35,000 per day.

A late-session effort from the Senate to help level reimbursements between independent doctors and hospital-employed doctors has failed in the House. This will continue each day as needed, according to Senate Majority Leader Ryan Ferns, R-Ohio.

"I would be hopeful we could handle this tomorrow, Nelson said". Ed Gaunch, R-Kanawha, lives closest to the Capitol, and has agreed to come in if called. Then they will pass it back.

The bill will be on amendment stage on the House floor today.

A rules suspension requires the backing of two-thirds of the House.

House members were expecting to approve the bill on 2nd and 3rd readings in short order, providing their version of a plank that could be key to settling on a state budget for the coming fiscal year.

As of Wednesday evening, however, the bill was still being drafted and had not yet been assigned a Senate bill number. The pay parity language is out of the bill; other parts of the bill that the House Health Care Committee supported would need to be attached to another bill if they are to become law this year, he said. The measure was rejected without consideration by the House.

Several delegates voted to advance the proposal to the full House of Delegates, while pointing out it does not raise enough revenue to avoid major cuts to state programs and services. "In terms of inflation adjusted dollars this government will shrink this year, which should please those who like the rest of us West Virginians have to live within our means". Yesterday's Senate Finance committee meeting was no different. No further action was taken.

"I'm very concerned about the unknown repercussions we might be getting into", Holland said. But here's my problem. But it's a good thing for us all. Democrats say money from that tax would finally meet the state's promise of paying 55% of school costs. Justice told House members it is unfair to evaluate a proposal and "forget where you are" - looking at what is believed to be as much as a $500 million deficit next year. "I really respect your speaker (Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha)".

"Senators want to give additional hospitals, agencies, and universities new blanket exemptions from their duty to defend you", Kobach continued. That hurt us all. But Ferns said Wednesday this is one issue in which he agrees with Justice. At least eight Senate Democrats will be required to join Republicans in approving the bill in that case. "He and I don't see eye-to eye often, but this was a political ploy. Yes, you might get a few more dollars in the taxes you'll collect or absorb from our clients, but you're going to destroy Kansas jobs", Hoheusle said. And the personal exemption on state income tax forms also would be increased from $2,000 to $2,500 for those earning less than $100,000.

In other business Thursday, the House approved a measure that would establish protocol for furlough of state employees.

"Practically every bill that has been introduced by the executive branch for their special budget session are proposals aimed at massively increasing taxation". Under this proposed bill, landscaping services - which includes installing trees, shrubs, or flowers; tree trimming; mowing; and the application of seed, mulch, pesticide, or fertilizer to an area of land - would be subject to the sales tax. "It's disappearing because it's being untaxed", Denning said.
