The Florida House passed a proposed constitutional amendment on Wednesday that would exempt the state from implementing a key part of the federal health care law -- the requirement that everyone have health insurance or pay a fine.
The measure passed the state Senate last month and would go before voters as a ballot measure in November 2012. But Florida Democrats point out that even if it did pass, federal law supersedes the state’s constitution.
Florida is one of 40 states challenging the health care law with legislation or lawsuits.
