State senator Harri Anne smith says she and many other wiregrass residents aren't happy with the recent passage of President Obama’s health care plan.
So she and several other republican senators decided to do something about it.
They've proposed a bill to the state senate that would prohibit any person, employer or healthcare provider from being forced participate in any healthcare system.
This constitutional amendment is similar to what had been considered in 38 other states.
“People in the wiregrass are mad about that issue and they want the state to try and stand up and fight against Alabama having to accept the Obama care,” said Smith.
The state senate overwhelming passed the bill Thursday.
It’ll now go in front of the state house of representatives.
