H.202 passed the House 94-49 yesterday and Governor Shumlin promises to sign it. The Vermont law deserves some careful attention, but doesn’t appear to be creating much of a stir in Vermont itself – the lead story in this morning’s Burlington Free Press was flooding on Lake Champlain and the most popular story on the website was UVM students in an annual clothing-optional rite of spring.
I’ve read the law (142 pages, a joy by federal standards) and will post throughout next week:
- Monday: Vermont’s Super MedPAC
- Tuesday: Federal and ERISA plans
- Wednesday: Bad news for PhRMA
- Thursday: Antitrust waivers
- Friday: Financing
Update: My interview with Ezra Klein is here.
