Missouri HB601 and SB51 would suspend the licenses of insurance carriers who accept federal subsidies through the federally-run Obamacare exchange within the state, effectively nullifying these illegal IRS subsidies. SB51 will need to pass through the Small Business, Insurance and Industry Committee successfully before it can receive a full vote.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS – It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, please follow all these steps to support this bill.
1. Call your state representative. Strongly, but respectfully urge him or her to cosponsor and support HB601. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email, so make sure to take a few minutes to call.
