Earlier today, we reported that the Illinois Senate passed HB 5007, which will implement key portions of ObamaCare nearly two years early in Cook County. Moments ago, the House concurred, sending the bill to the Governor's desk.
Much like the Senate vote earlier today, it was clear that the outcome was certain before the bill ever came to the floor in the House. The Institute was the only group to oppose the bill in the last-minute Human Services committee hearing.
Eleven House Republicans voted in favor of the early implementation, including Franco Coladipietro, Jim Durkin, Mike Fortner, David Leitch, Sidney Mathias, Michael McAuliffe, Rosemary Mulligan, Randy Ramey, Angelo Saviano, Timothy Schmitz, and Dave Winters.
