Statement from Sen. Judson Hill on Healthcare Choice Protection Passing General Assembly

ATLANTA (Apr. 29, 2010) – State Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta) released the following statement after Senate Bill 411, which now includes Hill’s authored legislation protecting Georgia’s current rights on health care choice, was approved Thursday by the Georgia General Assembly:

“I want to thank the entire General Assembly for helping me protect all Georgians from being compelled to participate in the federal healthcare program.  My original bill intended to shield every person in our state from having their basic rights of choice infringed upon by an unwanted government mandate.  With the passage of my measure, we will all continue to enjoy those rights to purchase private or public healthcare, or decline to participate in any healthcare plan at all.” 

– State Sen. Judson Hill

Senate Bill 317, authored by Hill and already approved by the Georgia Senate, was added as an amendment to SB 411.  The addition of Hill’s language would prohibit mandatory participation in any healthcare system. 

SB 411 now heads to Governor Perdue for his signature.   

Sen. Judson Hill serves as Republican Caucus Vice Chairman. He represents the 32nd Senate District which includes portions of Cobb and Fulton counties.  He may be reached by phone at 404.656.0150 or by e-mail at
