Maine Wire -

Maine Wire - "AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) The Maine Nurses Association says registered nurses from throughout the state will be joined by physicians, patients and health care activists Monday at a legislative hearing on a single-payer health care bill sponsored by Democratic Rep. Charles Priest of Brunswick.

The state bill is similar to a federal measure, the United States National Health Care Act, that would establish a publicly financed health care program.

Last week, Maine lawmakers passed a resolution calling on President Obama and Congress to establish a single-payer health system that covers everyone.

The Senate passed the nonbinding resolution by a 20-15 vote on Wednesday, a day after the House did the same by a 91-52 vote."
