House votes to exempt Iowa from Health Care Law

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--  The Iowa House has approved a bill to exempt Iowans from parts of federal health care reforms. The bill restricts penalties, taxes, or fines the federal government can charge Iowans who choose not to participate in the federal health care plan.

Opponents say the state doesn't have the authority to exclude Iowan's from a federal bill. The measure is expected to fail in the Iowa Senate.
