The following is a statement from Governor Deval Patrick:
"I congratulate the Legislature for approving legislation to contain health care costs. With over 98% of our residents insured today, we've shown the Nation how to extend coverage to everyone. Now we are poised to do the same on controlling costs. I look forward to signing this bill, and standing alongside the legislators and many stakeholders who came together once again for the good of the working families and business owners of the Commonwealth."
