Health Care Reform in the Hands of State Legislators
The final few months of 1994 witnessed several events that shed new light on the country's ongoing debate over health care reform. President Clinton's reform proposal died of its own weight in Congress; California's Proposition 186 was defeated overwhelmingly at the polls. Nine states have new Republican majorities in their state Senate and House; a total of thirty states now have Republican governors. State legislators across the country are demanding limits on the power of the federal government.
