Opponents to national health care reform are proposing to use federal dollars to fund alternative interstate health care compacts that effectively Block Grant federal health care funding.

Two legislative proposals embracing an interstate health care compact are House Bill (HB) 1008 and HB 5. Anne Dunkelberg testified before the House Select Committee on State Sovereignty, saying why such an approach is bad for Texas.
