House Passes Anti-Trust Exemption

Today the US House of Representative passed a bill removing the anti-trust exemption from insurance companies.

The legislation passed 406 to 19 after hours of debate over an amendment by Rep. Daniel Lungren (R-TX) that would provide a data-sharing exception to the bill. The amendment was not added to the bill, but Lungren still voted in favor of the final bill.

A Republican filibuster is expected in the Senate to prevent the anti-trust exemption from becoming law.
