Health Care Legislation Update

The other day I replied to a comment about the availability of the new health care law. Since then, we’ve received other questions, so I thought it might be helpful to provide the latest information we have available. First, GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) has various documents here and printed copies are available for purchase here. The Congressional Record, V. 156, No. 43, Book 2, March 21, 2010 includes the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Public Law 111-148, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is being printed and is currently expected to be available around May 25. Public Law 111-152, Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, which contains changes to the initial Act and provisions related to education, has just been submitted for printing. I hope this helps!

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any article as interesting as yours. It’s pretty worthwhile for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers had as good content as you do, the net would be a lot more useful than ever before.

    To my knowledge, PL 111-148 was not printed. I realize it was relevant only briefly but I imagine it will be needed for historic research. We have the enrolled bill to serve as a record, but the PL format is not available from FDsys. For historic research purposes, what will appear in Statutes at Large?
    What is the legal authority to waive the requirement that the law be published in this case?

    The PL 111-148 and 111-152 books how much for each? Could I please order in advance?

    Thank you, Jennifer

      Here’s the link to purchase both Public Laws: I had included a hyperlink in my post, but it may not have been visible enough. You can place your order now and we will ship them to you as soon as we receive them: late May for 148 and maybe a bit later for 152.
