Conrad: Health care bill is a step forward
BISMARCK (AP) -- Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., says the health care bill before the U.S. Senate includes his plan for nonprofit cooperatives and he sees it as a step forward.
The 10-year, $848-billion proposal faces a key floor vote later this week.
In a statement Thursday, Conrad said the bill includes a so-called public option, but he said it does not put North Dakota at a disadvantage by tying reimbursement to Medicare rates.
