Georgia to prohibit state enforcement of Obamacare

Bill: HB707 (PDF)

Sponsored by Reps. Spencer, Stover, et al., HB707 (“The Georgia Health Care Freedom and ACA Noncompliance Act”) states that neither the State of Georgia nor any of its political subdivisions or agencies may engage in any activity that aids in the enforcement or implementation of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, including the creation of state-run health care exchanges. The bill also provides that The Georgia General Assembly is empowered to enact sanctions, fines, penalties, or otherwise to ensure compliance with the legislation, and it authorizes the State Attorney General to bring a lawsuit in a state or local court to enjoin any person or entity from violation of the law. Finally, any health insurance contract purchased or established in violation of this legislation shall be void and shall not be enforced by the courts of this state.
