"Governor Mitt Romney signed most of a sweeping new healthcare bill into law yesterday at a festive Faneuil Hall ceremony hailed as a hallmark of bipartisan achievement, even as healthcare specialists expressed concern that the plan could start losing money in three years. The bill will require all state residents to have health insurance by July 1, 2007, and require businesses with 11 or more workers to pay $295 per employee annually if the companies do not provide insurance. Romney vetoed the fee, but the Legislature is expected to override the veto."
