  • Prohibits fines that include, but are not limited to, the following (Sec. 1):
    • An individual or employer paying directly for health care services; or
    • A health care provider accepting direct payment for health care services.
  • Specifies that this resolution to amend the state constitution will be voted on during the next general election unless the United States Supreme Court upholds the “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act” before September 1, 2012 (Secs. 1 & 3).
