Dutch PM Agrees to Change Health Bill to Avoid Government Collapse
Page (1) of 1 - 12/18/14||
|Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said in a letter to parliament late Thursday that his party would revise a health bill that was blocked in the senate, potentially staving off the collapse of his fragile center-right coalition government. Earlier on Thursday Rutte was forced to pull out of an EU summit to deal with a mounting political crisis over the bill, which has highlighted a deep divide between his Liberal party and the left-of-center Labour, with which he shares power. The bill was aimed at saving the government, midway through a four-year term, $1.23 billion from 2016 by restricting where patients can seek medical treatment.
