The 2007 Legislature approved House
Joint Resolution 48, calling for a study of health insurance reforms and
publicly funded health care programs in Montana.
The Economic Affairs Committee at an August 17 conference call meeting reconsidered
its June vote to establish a joint subcommittee with the Children, Families,
Health and Human Services Interim Committee to study HJR 48. The new vote is
to have a subcommittee just of the Economic Affairs Committee. The subcommittee
members are: Sen. Don Steinbeisser, Rep. Scott Mendenhall, Rep. Bill Thomas,
and Rep. Michele Reinhart.
