What’s Bill Nooney, Ray Hawk, Ed Butcher, Krayton Kerns, et. al. Have Against Healthcare for Children?

by jhwygirl

Today’s House floor vote included a 2nd reading for HB157, also known as the Healthy Kids Initiative.

This bill passed House Appropriations by a 17 – 3 vote. The fiscal note on this has $0 impact to the state’s general fund. It is funded by a federal matching grant of 77.63% to the state’s 22.37% of funds from the state special revenue fund.

This bill must survive a 3rd reading to be moved to the Senate. 41 members of the house voted against this bill today.

The 3rd reading is tomorrow (Tuesday) at 1 p.m.
Please consider calling the Session Information Desk at 406-444-4800 to leave a message for as many as five legislators per call. Your message will be delivered directly to the legislators. The TTY (Telephone Device for the Deaf) number is 406-444-4462. The phone opens at 7:30 a.m.

    They’re afraid that the children will grow up thinking that health care coverage comes from the government.

  2. Charles

    Is it possible that McGillvray is a tool of the Insurance Industry? Duh.
    As per Montana State Auditors office, Lic number 12735 . Like many legislators perhaps he represents his own self interests and maybe these companies?

    The Dems need to ram this through.

  3. Charles

    Darn..my link above didn’t work and I am not savvy enough to fix it. Can anyone help? Thank you .

  4. Pronghorn

    Race horse owner, casino owner, Nooney is into gambling…guess he wants to gamble with kids’ health, too. Hell, they’re not HIS kids.

  5. Charles, can you just copy and paste that link again? I’m not sure where you found it.

  6. OK. Figured it out. Go here: http://sao.mt.gov/insurance/findagent.asp and put in Thomas McGillvray.

  7. klemz

    Just to be clear, the Bill Nooney who owns five casinos is his father.

  8. Elanor DH

    They were wheeling out the socialized medicine rhetoric yesterday. That’s such dishonest rhetoric. I wish they’d just be honest about it, that they don’t want insurance companies to hurt, and let the debate be about that. But, then, that’s a pretty naive wish isn’t it? Marc Racicot made it such the in thing for Republicans to sell their souls to the insurance companies. damn trendsetter.

  9. Pronghorn

    There are TWO Gamblin’ Bill Nooneys??? Thanks for that correction.

  10. klemz

    I’m not sure what percentage of what joints Bill Jr. owns, but he doesn’t operate anything as far as I know. though, I think Hi-Noon Petroleum might run some roadside casinos outside of town.

  11. Big Swede

    Make sure you check whether Nooneys pays their taxes.

  12. Widowmaker

    Thank you for this list. I now can take the time and send each of them a note thanking them for doing the right thing. Now, on to see who will fight for my rights in HB228.
