Some state lawmakers want ban on insurance mandate

Another interesting item in the NY Times: Several state lawmakers are pushing amendments to the state constitutions that would ban a mandatory health insurance clause.

Some say the moves are symbolic and wouldn’t hold up in court, but others believe the bans could create legal clashes that would delay federal healthcare changes.

The idea has been introduced in at least 10 states (some before the health reform debate began in Washington) and four others are planning similar measures. In Arizona, lawmakers have already will place the amendment on its ballot in 2010.
