EIGHT STATES NOW
The Delaware House of Representatives, on May 12, passed a resolution memorializing Congress not to enact legislation imposing compulsory health insurance on the people of the country. This makes eight states to date expressing objection from one or both houses to the federalization of medicine.

New Health Legislation Introduced as Hearings Continue
House and Senate committee hearings on proposed national health legislation, now approaching the end of the first month, won fresh interest late in May with the introduction of additional bills. Most noteworthy were the eight identical bills, filed simultaneously in Senate and House, on federal subsidization of voluntary prepayment plans and the Miller bill, which calls for an impartial, bipartisan study of the nation's health. The new measures have been referred to the health subcommittees which are in the midst of conducting public hearings.
