The Iowa Republican: Doctor shopping bill passes out of committee, but what's next?

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Many have deemed this week "labor week" in the Iowa House of
Representatives. Last night some 40 Iowans spoke out at a public
forum. Following the forum, the bill quickly passed out of the House
Labor Committee. The bill is expected to be debated on the floor of
the House on Friday if Democrats can find the 51 votes needed to pass
it. Democrat leaders in the House might have a hard time finding the
necessary votes to move forward with the bill. It is rumored that as
many as ten Democrats oppose the legislation. If that is indeed the
case, it will be another embarrassing loss for the labor unions who
have yet to see one of their legislative priorities be signed into
law.
