Proposed bill to require insurers provide 12-month supply of contraceptives dies in committee
from Idaho State Journal
A proposed bill that would require Idaho insurers to provide patrons with a 12-month supply of contraceptives died in the Senate Health and Welfare Committee Monday afternoon. The proposed bill was originally introduced by Sen. Cherie Buckner-Webb, D-Boise, last year, where it failed in committee. Sen. Maryanne Jordan, D-Boise, represented her at the Monday meeting. Senators were against moving the proposed bill forward because it was the same bill that failed last year. Sen. Mary Souza, R-Coeur d'Alene, said she would feel more comfortable adjusting the proposal to require insurers provide a six-month supply instead of a year and indicated that legislators made a similar request last year.
