House Votes To Opt Out of Federal Health Reform

Salt Lake City, UT –
Utah is one step closer to opting out of any federal health care reform. House lawmakers took up the issue yesterday on Capitol Hill.

The vast majority served by Medicaid are Utah's children -120,000 of them, followed by people with disabilities and very poor adults. KUER's Jenny Brundin reports.
