House Memorial 2002 - Health Care

February 25, 2010 | AZPM

House Concurrent Memorial 2002 is essentially a letter to Congress. The topic of this particular memorial is health care legislation. The Arizona House is asking Congress to ensure that the costs of health care legislation are evenly spread across all the states. Tucson State Representative Phil Lopes told the members of the House he like the message in the memorial, but he thinks sending, what he called a post card, to Congress is a waste of time.

On February 23, 2010 the full House approved the proposal with a 34-23 vote.
