Health care opt out approved by Senate

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Senate has approved a measure that would allow Oklahoma voters to opt out of key provisions of the federal health care bill signed into law by President Obama.
The joint resolution approved Tuesday by a 36-11 vote would send
to a vote of the people in November a state question to prohibit
any requirement that a person, employer or hospital participate in
a health care system.
A similar resolution is expected to be approved in the House
later this week. Both measures are destined for a conference
committee, where only one version is expected to emerge for a final
legislative vote.
Senate Democrats attempted to amend the bill to place the issue
on the July 27 primary ballot, but Republicans derailed that
effort.
