Bill delayed for ‘posturing’

The Senate has agreed unanimously to put off its debate on HB 391a, the "Idaho Health Freedom Act," for a day. "With the consent of the sponsor and other individuals," Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis told the Senate, a delay is sought "as everybody gathers some additional information and does their appropriate posturing." The bill is the measure that seeks to ban Idaho from complying with any federal health care reform legislation that requires individuals or businesses to purchase health insurance, and requires the state Attorney General to go to court to fight any such requirement. It's prompted much debate and passed the House on a straight party-line vote.
