Proposition C advocates release finance reports

By Matt Sepic, St. Louis Public Radio

Supporters spent slightly more than $100,000 to promote a successful Missouri ballot measure that attempts to defy a key part of the new federal health care law.

Proposition C approved last month says government may not require people to have health insurance nor penalize those who pay out of pocket.

It clashes with a new federal law requiring people to have health insurance by 2014 or face penalties.

Campaign finance reports out yesterday show Missourians for Health Care Freedom raised about $125,000 and spent about $114,000 promoting the ballot measure.

There was no organized statewide opposition group. Voters approved the measure by 71 percent.
