Maryland Governor Signs Health Benefits Exchange Bill.

The Washington Times (5/3, Hill) reports, “Gov. Martin O’Malley signed bills into law on Wednesday, including legislation that will limit use of septic systems and double the state’s so-called ‘flush tax,'” which “were among several notable pieces of environmental legislation.” In addition, he “signed a bill allowing the state to set up a health benefits exchange where residents and small businesses can buy benefits from private insurers in accordance with the US Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
