Bill To Stop Health Changes In NC Passes Senate

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina Senate has given its final approval to legislation that would block efforts by state government to carry out portions of the federal health care overhaul related to expanding Medicaid and an online marketplace for health insurance.
 

     Senators voted along party lines Tuesday in favor of the Republican-written legislation that would reject efforts to provide Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of uninsured citizens. It also directs the state to stop working on a health insurance exchange.
 

     The bill now heads to the House, where Speaker Thom Tillis said the chamber would seek to address concerns about the bill from Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. His administration has said the bill's current form could make it hard for the state to pay for a computer program that determines Medicaid eligibility.
