New bill will create health care system for Maine residents

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP)- The legislature released a few details this month regarding Senator Geoff Gratwicks bill. The bill would create a health care system for Maine residents. Gratwick served on a committee last year that was tasked with creating a single-payer health care system in Maine. The bill would rely on payroll taxes, transaction taxes and other federal funding to fund it. More details about the bill will most likely to be hashed out in the legislative committee if the legislation moves forward.
