Health Care Compact
introduced in Ohio Senate
Ohio Continues the fight against Obama Care

COLUMBUS, OH -- The Tea Party Patriot Groups of Ohio are excited to announce that the Health Care Compact, an agreement between participating states that restores authority and responsibility for health care regulation to member states, was introduced into the Ohio Senate this past Wednesday. As part of the 50 state initiative to enact Health Care Compacts, the compact will allow Ohio to create its own health care policies by joining an interstate compact that supersedes prior federal law.

The Health Care Compact has been introduced in 14 states, and has passed the State House of Representatives in Montana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arizona, Georgia and Texas.  It has passed the State Senate in Arizona, Missouri and Georgia. In addition, in more than 36 states, citizen groups and state legislators are actively considering the Health Care Compact.
Interstate compacts have been used throughout U.S. history to allow states to coordinate in important policy areas. Authority for compacts was established in the Constitution (Article I, Section 10), and more than 200 such agreements are currently in effect. They are voluntary agreements between states that, when consented to by congress, have the force of federal law.
"We would like to thank Senator Grendell and his staff for working with us on this important piece of legislation.  Oklahoma and Georgia have already signed the Health Care Compact legislation into law, and we hope to be the third", stated Gary Young of the North Ridgeville Tea Party Patriots and Chairman of the Ohio Health Care Compact Committee.
