State lawmakers are trying again to reform Michigan’s largest health insurer. The Gongwer News Service reports that the Senate unanimously approved a reform plan for Blue Cross Blue Shield today. It would turn it into a non-profit mutual company.

Debate in the House is not expected to go as smoothly.

Governor Snyder vetoed a similar reform plan last month. It included restrictions on abortion that are not part of the new Senate bill.
