Other goings on

Posted By on Fri, Mar 6, 2009 at 12:59 PM

John Williams sends a brief note on other happenings around the capitol today.  The House State Agencies committee passed Rep. Steve Harrelson's bill to regulate Toughman boxing and mixed martial arts fighting. See John's Blog, The Legislative Beat for more.  Also, Harrelson adds his two cents.

The House insurance committee passed HB1700, a bill to expand ARKids First, the natural state's version of SCHIP. The only no vote was Mark Martin, R-Beyond Twilight Zone. He argued that the government doesn't need to be helping a family of five on an income of $65,000 or less and that private insurers can do the job better.  And why not?  They've done such a fine job of making health insurance affordable so far.
