Lawmakers hear from opposition to federal healthcare bill

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - State lawmakers heard from several groups opposing the new federal health care bill on Tuesday.

The groups are asking the legislature to pass a constitutional amendment against the plan. It would prohibit any person, employer or health care provider from having to participate in any health care system.

Senator Scott Beason is sponsoring one of the bills.

Democrats in both chambers have blocked the progress of these bills.
