Alabama voters take on Affordable Care Act

Tools

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A constitutional amendment on Tuesday's ballot will allow Alabama voters to express their views on the Affordable Care Act without having any significant legal impact.

Amendment 6 would prohibit any person, employer or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system.

The sponsor, former Republican state Rep. Blaine Galliher of Rainbow City, says it allows voters to express their views on the act and its passage will encourage the state attorney general to keep pursuing legal challenges.

State Democratic Party Chairman Mark Kennedy said the proposed amendment is a slap in the face of the president, but it does nothing more than add useless language to the state constitution.
