The apparent collapse of health reform in Washington has shifted attention back to the question of what (if anything) states can do to control prices, improve the delivery system, and/or expand coverage at time when revenues are collapsing. Over the course of the next few weeks, GOVERNING will take a look at several alternatives being proposed. We'll start today by highlighting the ideas of Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
Over the weekend, Gov. Pawlenty -- a leading contender for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012 -- began a campaign to put his health reform ideas before the public. The essentials of the Palenty approach were laid out in an op-ed in the Washington Post. (Or catch him here on Fox News.)
