Roob Pushing For State Health Insurance

Last updated on Friday, May 5, 2006

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The move toward state-mandate health insurance may be gathering momentum buoyed by a controversial decision in Massachusetts to order nearly universal health coverage.

Family and Social Services Administration Mitch Roob, says he wants to see something in place although the Massachusetts plan probably wouldn't work here.

Right now, more than 800,000 Hoosiers don't have health insurance and some officials say that taxes the system and drives costs up.
