Floridians to vote on Health Care Freedom Amendment in 2012:
Bill: CS/SJR 2 (Amendment 1)
Originally introduced as CS/CS/HJR1 by Rep. Scott Plakon (and substituted with CS/SJR2 by Mike Haridopolos in the Senate), CS/SJR 2 (Amendment 1) proposes an amendment to the Florida State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage; permits a person or an employer to purchase lawful health care services directly from a health care provider; permits a health care provider to accept direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; exempts persons, employers, and health care providers from penalties and taxes for paying directly or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; and prohibits laws or rules from abolishing the private market for health care coverage of any lawful health care service.
