A tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Roll Call for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, August 2, 1996

As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources, Senator Kennedy became the voice of support in the Senate in favor of health insurance coverage for Americans who change or lose their job. Senator Kennedy and Senator Nancy Kassebaum introduced the Senate version of a bill which eventually resulted in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This roll call shows the unanimous vote in favor of passing HIPAA and is a testament to Kennedy's legislative influence in the Senate.
