Forty-eight members of the Vermont House of Representatives have introduced a bill that would pave the way for publicly-financed health care for all state residents beginning in 2023.
Progressive Representative Brian Cina says the bill picks up from a previous universal health care bill.

The plan would only be implemented if it didn't increase administrative costs and if it provides reimbursement for primary care costs that attract a sufficient number of primary care providers.

The Times Argus reports various stakeholders plan to come up with an operational plan and funding mechanics for universal health care by January 2020.
