Rep. Herger To Introduce Bill With GOP Ideas on Reform
This week, Rep. Wally Herger (R-Calif.) plans to reintroduce a bill (HR 5424) that includes Republican proposals for reforming the U.S. health care system. Herger said the legislation aims to encourage competition among insurers, restrict unnecessary malpractice lawsuits, promote health savings accounts and reduce wasteful spending. Herger initially introduced the bill in May 2010, but it failed to advance to committee.
