Mandate Debate

From News Observer:
A conservative group hosted a seminar Tuesday afternoon blasting a federal mandate that requires some religious organizations to provide insurance coverage for "contraceptive, sterilization, and abortifacient" treatments.

The issue has caused a political firestorm and is part of a debate over health care law championed by President Barack Obama that is at the center of state and federal races around the country and is currently under scrutiny of the Supreme Court.

On hand for the event, hosted by Thomas International Center atop the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Raleigh, was N.C. House Majority Leader Skip Stam. Stam told the group of around a dozen that the Supreme Court decision, expected on Thursday, could pave way for the revival of HB2, a bill exempting the state from insurance mandates that passed last year but was vetoed by Gov. Bev Perdue.
