Will Missouri impose one mandate as it fights another?

"Regarding health care, Missouri’s legislature is getting it right on at least one front. On the one hand, it is working to close legal loopholes that could allow a health insurance exchange to be implemented unilaterally in the state capitol, either by administrative or gubernatorial fiat. There are lots of reasons to oppose implementing an Obamacare exchange in the state, but there should be little dispute that if it is going to be implemented, it needs to go through the proper legislative channels. What should raise concerns, however, is whether state legislation that mandates optometrist eye exams for incoming kindergartners is right for Missouri." (02/07/12)
