House Commerce Agrees: Denying Battered Wives Health Insurance Wrong

House Bill 1189 passed its first legislative test yesterday. The South Dakota House Commerce Committee gave unanimous approval (way to go, Mitch!) to the measure, which would prohibit insurers from asking questions about domestic violence for the purpose of charging higher premiums or denying coverage. Aye voters included good conservatives Reps. Shantel Krebs and Kristen Conzet.

A certain conservative blogger keeps insisting HB 1189 is bad, unnecessary, and futile legislation. Why oh why aren't his conservative friends in Pierre listening?
