  • Since the firm's last update on health care reform, issued in early September, the most significant development has been the Senate Finance Committee's 14-9 vote to pass its health reform bill, entitled "America's Healthy Future Act of 2009" ("AHFA"). All Democrats on the panel voted for the AHFA, as well as Senator Olympia Snowe, the first Republican in Congress to support a Democratic health care reform plan. Many believe that the country is now the closest it has ever come to enacting comprehensive federal health care reform.
