Angle Files Initiative to Outlaw Health Exchanges

Posted: Updated:

Conservative activist and failed U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle wants to outlaw health insurance exchanges in Nevada.
 
Angle on Tuesday filed an initiative petition with the secretary of state's office seeking a constitutional amendment to prohibit health exchanges as called for under federal health care reform.
 
Called the Healthcare Freedom Protection Act, backers will need to collect more than 101,000 signatures by June 17 to qualify for the ballot. Voters would then have to approve it in November and in the 2016 general election.
 
Angle is a former Nevada assemblywoman who emerged from a packed field of Republican contenders seeking to unseat Democratic U.S. Senate Majority Leader in 2010.
 
Reid won by more than 41,000 votes.  (AP)
