Maryland Senate Could Extend Health Insurance Deadline

Maryland's Senate president says an emergency bill may be taken up next week to address problems the state has had with its health exchange website.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that lawmakers may consider allowing additional time for people to enroll in health care plans without being penalized.

Miller (D-Calvert), says such a measure could be taken up as soon as the Maryland General Assembly convenes next week for its annual 90-day session.

Emergency legislation can take effect as soon as lawmakers pass the measure and the governor signs it.

Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat, has scheduled an afternoon news conference to talk about the state's efforts to expand health care.
