Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This proposed constitutional amendment, proposed to the 2011 legislature on
first consideration, provides that the people have the right to enter into private
contracts with health care providers for health care services and to purchase private
health care coverage, and prohibits enactment of any law that requires any person
to obtain or maintain health insurance coverage or to participate in any health care
system or plan.
A constitutional amendment requires adoption by two successive legislatures,
and ratification by the people, before it can become effective.
