Last year at this time, we talked with our political analyst Bill Curry about the possibility of universal health care in Connecticut. There was some hope amongst advocates that it would be a key issue in the legislature. That didn't happen - but the last year's national debate about health care costs and the effects of poor health coverage on people around the nation - have pushed the debate back into the forefront.
A new plan to extend state health benefits to a variety of residents is gaining traction in both houses of the state legislature - and a new study is out today, talking about the long-term impact on residents who don't have coverage.
We're going to talk about state health policy today with someone who's been writing a lot about it recently - our politcal anayst Bill Curry. He's a columnist for the Hartford Courant, the former state comptroller, and a two-time democratic nominee for governor.
