> Augusta -- April 2, 2014
> 
> 
> Late this morning the Maine State Senate passed LD 1345, as Amended into a Single-payer Health Care “Resolve”. Senator Gratwick of Bangor who has been the Senate champion of the bill reports that Senator Woodbury (Unenrolled, Cumberland) spoke most eloquently in support of the bill. The vote was 20 to 14, with all Republicans voting against the resolve “... that all Maine residents have access to and coverage for affordable, quality health care...”
> 
> 
> Further,  “The amendment requires the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over insurance and financial services matters to solicit the services of one or more consultants to propose design options for creating a universal system of health care in the State."

> 
> Thank you everyone for your great work – all of you who traveled to Augusta, sent emails of support and made calls to our Legislators. We will continue to keep you informed as LD 1345 moves back to the House again then onto the governor for further action.
