Massachusetts enacted health care reform legislation


On April 12, 2006, Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney signed health care reform legislation which required almost all state residents to obtain health insurance coverage. The bill enjoyed nearly unanimous legislative support and provided a model for the federal reforms signed by President Barack Obama. The federal legislation is now the subject of federal litigation regarding its constitutionality.
