|Rep. Ramsey (R) watches as Governor Deal signs HB 47|
“I want to thank Governor Deal for signing this legislation today, and by doing so, providing Georgians with more options in the health insurance market.
“HB 47 places more power into the hands of insurance-buying consumers and makes it possible for us to break down the barriers to competition in the health insurance market in our state. As a result, consumers will see an increase in options and greater latitude in their ability to make decisions that benefit their families. The consumer wins when the forces of the free-market are unlocked on their behalf, and that is exactly what HB 47 provides.”
