SD Senator Gives Up On Health Care Regulation Bill

SD Senator Gives Up On Health Care Regulation Bill
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota senator has asked a committee to defeat a bill he drafted to regulate the "navigators" who help sign up people for insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act.

Sen. Al Novstrup says he talked to stake holders and could not find a compromise.

The bill would have required registration and background checks for the navigators. The federal government has provided some regulations already.

Critics of the bill have said it would have added red tape to the process.

Novstrup says there is nothing to keep a felon from becoming a navigator. Yet, the Aberdeen Republican says there has been no evidence of abuse in South Dakota.

Two committee members voted to pass the measure on to the House. It was defeated with a 5-2 vote.
